Q: Does pumping your breasts hurt?

A: It shouldn't, but it can feel a little awkward while you get used to it. If it does feel uncomfortable, you can adjust the pump to draw the milk more slowly or with less power. You can also look for pumps with soft shields that fit around your breasts. Hand pumps (you move a handle to work the vacuum motion) may be more comfortable for some women than electric pumps (where a battery or electricity runs the vacuum for you). --Jessica Hartshorn

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website www.SleepBaby.org - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! Best of luck to you and your family :)
