Quoting Best of both worlds ;-):" <blockquote><b>Quoting Colt's mommy:</b>" yes. it is extremely hard to pump exclusively, ... [snip!] ... fus.It has become a challenge to get her to latch on now but like the mom who wrote this post my b**bs are two different sizes."


I do have a good pump I think its a medulla advanced. But I don't know if it its my b**b or what but when I double pump it hurts my right b**b (bigger one) so bad and my left one doesn't hurt at all. I don't know if its clogged or what but it really hurts to pump my right b**b. I have the same problem my son is so used to the bottle that I can get him on my right b**b but its impossible to get him latched on my second b**b. He also is a really slow eater with the bottle it takes him like an hour to eat I have no idea why.

When i was in the hospital i had a hard time getting my daughter to latch also so i was taught how to get the milk out by hand onto a spoon and feed my daughter like that it was really odd to me but it worked.

Its very frustrating when you cant get them to latch on trust me i know but even if your giving the breastmilk in a bottle that's ok to. But the only problem with that is when you want them to latch it may be a big problem because of the amount of milk flowing out the breast at once is hard for them to control. Thats the problem im having right now, but dont give up mama it will get better. Do you have a lactation counselor out your way that you can speak to?

I don't and that is the problem. I should try and find one so that I can learn how to get him to latch right. Thanks though, I am definitely going to keep trying.

Are you engorged? It sound like thats why the bigger one is hurting i was engorged for the first 3 weeks but its getting better...I was told that when your engorged its harder for them to latch on maybe give the bigger one a little more time on the pump see if the help
