    Thats great news. I'm still feeding of just one booby because I have flat nipple on left. No milk there now either so I will just continue. Seems to be supplying more than enough anyways but two breast working would of been better!

    The nipple shield did bugger all for us, she'd only latch onto the tip- OUCH. I dont no how she did it, just kept trying and she just hopped on. But my nipple stings everytime shes on, I cant een touch it it's that sore. I'm pretty sure she gets on right, so i think it's just from the nipple being drawn out... :(
    Im bout to call a LC and get some more help, have u thought of contacting one?
