The LC said I have the right size and it does fit my nipple pretty good. Minus the extra space at the top.

No she isn't doing that but wow that sounds really painful!

Sorry it took me a bit to respond. I now have thrush and baby doesn't so I am putting off getting her back on the breast until that's cleared up. I am a bit torn on if it's the right decision because I know waiting longer isn't ideal but then I don't want to end up passing the thrush back and forth with my LO. It seems like their isn't a very good solution.

So for now I am still exclusively pumping and hoping to get the thrush gone. I am not having to supplement with any formula any more and I am actually creating a small surplus which I am super happy about. Thank you for the support, I really appreciate it.
