Thank you for asking this question and all the great responses. I too am in the same boat having my daughter 3 days ago and am pumping to feed after having latching/goofing around/eat for 3 min and fall asleep problems. I bought a hand pump and can now get her to eat 1.5 oz per feeding, still not enough but am pumping and storing about 12 oz every 6 hours, after worrying about getting all the good stuff by just expressing. ANY more info/ideas are greatly appreciated. THANKS!!
I had them MANY years ago and took them out when I found out I was preggo with my son who's now almost 12. It did not have any effect on breastfeeding..although looking back I do have to admit I wonder why in my young years I did such a crazy thing! ;p Hope this helps.
