Latched on Raelynn in the hospital but didn't pump. Only colostrum anyway. Yesterday tried pumping cos Raelynn was sleepy and only got a few drops of colostrum which I gave to RaeAnne. Today, tried pumping after latching and got 15ml of EBM. Pumped again after 7pm feed (Raelynn only took from left side) and got another 15ml of EBM.
But my breasts still feel swollen and heavy after pumping and some part of the areola feel lumpy and painful when I press. Tried to hand express and press on painful parts but still painful for some parts. Worried that it may be the start of blocked ducts so tried calling TMC's hotline. First it rings then was cut off. Then I tried calling twice thereafter and the HP was switched off. Some hotline. Bleah! :/
So sian and scared of seeing history repeating itself with blocked ducts and mastitis. The pain and costs really puts me off BF sometimes. Sigh.
