For me the painful part was the milk letting down and the contractions they cause at the same time. I have little to no feeling in my nipples because of third degree burns when I was 8yrs old that destroyed the nerves. So even when they do dry out and such I don't feel it. Hence why I can't breast fed past the teething stage. It is too dangerous that I could get a cut and not know it and then get a serious infection. So once teething starts I have to strikely pump and bottle feed. I can't imagine the pain it must be to have them crack, bleed and other things I have heard moms say that are so painful

I always had a stong letdown as well as contractions in the beginning as well with nursing. I also had phantom movements for about 6 months with Devin where it felt like I had early stage pregnancy movements inside my belly.

I never had any cracking and bleeding, but I always use a lot of lanolin in the beginning when my nipples are getting toughened up still and also really dry my nipples off before putting them away. It was slightly more uncomfortable for me with Coop, but I used the APNO my dr prescribed and that did the trick. It should never be painful though, and if it is, there is most likely something else going on like bad latch, or cracks etc.

But again, each woman is different. We all have different tolerance levels for pain and different levels of milk supply, and different levels of tolerance for the amount our bodies can handle in producing the milk as well as sleep deprivation. Plus, nursing full time, especially for a mother working out of the home who has to pump, is a huge committment and the sacrifices you have to make sometimes may not be worth it to all woman. Some people aren't willing to put in the work. Some are, but just can't make enough milk etc. There are so many different angles to a successful nursing relationship.

In the end, all of our babies get fed and loved on one way or another and that is all that really matters in the big scheme of things.

I've heard this a lot too. It's really important to me but I feel anxious about it. It's another reason I went with a midwife instead of an OB.

ok nothing big right now because we are still moving BUT I was wondering what others are doing or have done in their nurseries? We are building Savannahs now that we have a 4 bedroom house. Her room does not have a closet (suppossed to be a den/office) so she has a armoire, crib, excersaucer and other toys but no storage and no changing table.

Im trying to come up with ideas for both of those.

We don't know if we are having a boy or girl so we did a monkey theme! The room is a deep yellow with one wall brown and above the crib is this huge monkey on a vine that my sister and I did.

I'll have to show pics it turned out really good.

We dont have a nursery. Nico will be in our room for at least the first year. So our room has the bassinet right now, a dresser for him, the top of the largest dog crate converted into a change table, his shelves with all his accessories. We have his crib which will easilly fit where the Dog crates are now for when he is too big for the bassinet. The dog crates will then be moved to where our end tables are. We also have a very comfortable love seat in there for night feedings instead of a rocker. So no theme and no colors for the wall. We got everything used off of Kijiji to save money so though it is all boy stuff it is mismatched.

She still sleeps in our room but its nice to have somewhere to put her so I can still do my own stuff and to store her toys LOL. Its also connected to our room.
Shes got Morgans crib, got the rocking chair free off our FB page its a assemble and stain yourself deal, her playpen (current changing table), the Armoire I bought for 100 on clearance and it matches everything and her current toy organization was the other kids. LOL
