Re: Please help me keep going...
Awe Mama, hang in there! I SO feel your pain. I bled and was in excruciating pain for weeks and the nurses just kept telling me it was "normal" to hurt so badly. I would literally cry every. single. time. my LO nursed. I finally got a prescription for thrush medication and the pain cleared up almost immediately. I had to use a shield for a couple weeks to allow myself time to heal, but eventually we were able to wean off with minimal problems and have a great breastfeeding relationship (at 10 months and going strong). And if you decide it isn't going to work out for you, just know that you've given it one hell of a shot
