Yes they gave me one and I already knew of another one and I talked to her once and she never called back. It frustrating:/ but I'm going to just keep calling her
You can get a nipple shield at target. They're Medela brand and about $10 (at least here in MI). Seriously, it saved my ability to nurse. Did the hospital you gave birth at give you information about lactation consultants that you could try?
Okay thank you guys so much. I'll try and find a nipple shield and I have called 2 lactation consultants and I still haven't heard back and it's been a week:/
^^ nipple shield and lactation consultant.
I'd get the shield asap.
Babies differ on when they sleep through the night (my son didn't until he turned 3, yay), but generally around four months is what I've been told. Some do it sooner though!
Reach out to a lactaion coach they are such a great help. A nipple shield worked for me.
