I was the same way I only would like to feed her on my right but then I started to dry out and my left engorged so I had to feed her I had so much problems cause mine was like yours and it also cracked and bleed but I couldn't get anything on the right but I still keep going even though it was painful but now everything is way better and I can proudly say I have breastfed my LO for 9months and still going good that's pretty good for a 19 year old cuz I had to go to the doctor cuz of the cracks and bleeding and they said that that was the worse crack they have ever seen an that most people especially teens give up but I keeper going not only cuz of my daughter she hated bottles and would gag all the time but congrats just keep trying it will get better :) :)

This gives me great hope!

I attempted relactation for a little while, then eventually I stopped because of all the craziness lately. How many times did you pump a day? Also, my LO won't latch without the nipple shield. I have tried for hours before to get her to latch and she won't. Is relactation possible with just pumping? She's also teething, so she chews/bites a lot now. The last time I got her to latch (with nipple shield), she just laid there and chewed...and it hurt. lol.

But congrats on successfully doing it! 14 ounces...wow!! I didn't even pump that much when I was BFing. How old is your LO?

That's awesome!!! And I think that might be the reason for your missing AF now too.

That's awesome! I'm taking Fenugreek right now and it isn't working much. Maybe my body is use to it.
