  • When my milk came in with my DD, I woke up in the morning and walked out into the living room pulled up my nightgown and showed DH the torpedoes on my chest. He was like OH MY GOD! Then I promptly told him he wasn't allowed to touch them!

  • i had to wake dd to feed on doctors orders until she was 3 weeks old. It was a nightmare at times, but she was on the small side, had lost a lot of weight in the hospital, had trouble latching and was slightly jaundiced.
    My best trick to get her up was to change her diaper or strip her down to one. I always had a blanket near by to wrap us in once she was awake and eating.

    I just said to dh yesterday how glad I am that I stuck with it. I had a really hard time for the first 5 or 6 weeks. DD is now 11 weeks old and it is a breeze! I hope it gets easier for you very soon!

    If you are so large now that your milk is in that your baby has trouble latching, try pumping a bit before each feeding to make your breasts softer and make it easier to latch.

    Good Luck!!
