I know they might seem dumb to some of you ladies, but I'm clueless when it comes to beastfeeding lol.
I formula fed my two girls, now aged 2 1/2 and 4. I had to go on certain medicine right after delivery and didn't feel safe breastfeeding them. Anyway.
I'm 16 weeks pregnant with our 3rd and want to breastfeed this one. At least, I hope it will work out.
I know when my milk dried up after having my girls, it was super painful and lots of leaking, is that still the case while you're breastfeeding too? Or is the engorging pain not so bad since you're getting rid of the milk on a daily basis?
Another concern is pumping too. I know nothing about it, but heard it hurts? I might not pump as I'll be home with the kids anyway, but I'm worried about having 3 kids and getting up every 2 or so hours at night to feed. I'm also in college fulltime and don't want my grades to suffer because of being sleep deprived. With our girls, my husband and I took turns getting up, if I breastfeed, he obviously can't feed the baby at night anymore.
