Re: my poor boobies :(

I got a nipple cream that is AMAZING. This is my 7th time starting breastfeeding (I'm currently pumping like crazy bc baby is in the NICU) but this is the FIRST time my nipples aren't cracked and crazy sore as my milk comes in and my nipples are beginning getting used to breastfeeding/pumping. (This is my 5th Preemie and usually by now pumping has them bleeding, cracked and raw as I try to get my milk to come in). It's called Baby's Bliss Nipple Cream for Mommies. I can't recommend it enough. I actually got it as a free-be from Momsmilkboutique, and it was worth my entire $100+ order just for the fact I ended up with this stuff I never would have ordered otherwise!

I totally feel your pain. I got my milk in a week ago and my boobs and baby are finally starting to regulate themselves. After being super engorged for a couple days it feels so good to be semi squishy again.

What I did was I did a lot of icing in between feedings with warm compresses right before feedings.

Showering and letting the water hit your nipples on accident is the worst....

Oh man, yes! I always covered my nipples while showering the front of my body.

I hear ya! Last week was rough and little man would fall asleep so fast barely putting a dent on those bad boys. A hand pump was a great help and it allowed me to give bottles a go too.

I completely forgot about engorgement too. And how big my boobs would get. Good lord my hubby calls them my **** star boobs. Too bad they don't last, though really I can't imagine running with these on my chest!

Well my milk has started regulating itself so i havent dealt with engorgement for a couple of weeks now. That is until this morning. Baby girl decided to sleep for a solid 4 hours from 2am to 6am. When i got up to feed her my right breast was totally full and rock solid.

Im glad she is learning to sleep longer during the night but OMG my poor boob.
