well it f*cking does, but not for too long - the other woman in the ward was on her 4th baby and was telling me that it hurts at first no matter how many you had - the not hurting has only worked for about the past week, so i believe it to be a total lie Laughing the cream helps loads though if you use it after every feed (including the dazed just after birth one where a slimy baby is flung at your boob and a midwife 'kindly helps')

the maternity pads are vile haha but i got through probably 50 or so before i could go onto the slim ones, you will be glad of them you wont believe the sh*t that comes out of your body Shocked its amazing Very Happy

well I've done all my nesting, baked loads, paperwork all up to date, got my nipple cream, so feel free to pop out soon beano Laughing Laughing Laughing

the midwife in our antenatal class said 'don't bother with nipple cream, bf doesn't hurt', well seeing as she was in her 50's I figured she had forgot about all the pain so I have stocked up and are prepared for the pain,

they are liars i tell you! but it doesnt hurt for long, just at first and then when your milk comes in - if you dont believe me check out the sad posts on the newborn and feeding forums! i thought i was alone and that i was doing something wrong, but it turns out most people have a bit of soreness Smile[/list][/list]

we are doing shifts when elijah is not sleeping so john will stay up til 3 or 4am then i will get up, but sadly i still have to wake up to feed him and john brings him through - i think after a day john felt so sorry for me he was happy to do the housework and nappies and things so you might still be in luck Smile

Laughing @ lovely nipples, im not even sure what lovely looking nipples look like...the midwives have no fear of helping, be warned they will just grab your boob and you baby and smoosh them together Shocked i think my midwife gave me that dvd, they play it at the antenatal clinic too - lots of very cheery people being wholesome and breastfeedy Very Happy
