So glad things are better for you!  As for airport nursing, if this is still relevant, I am a fan of sitting on the floor over by the window or something with my back against a wall for support, use cradle hold with legs bent so your knee kind of supports your arm and babe.  Happy travels!

I have the same problem with one breast being preferred over the other. I have to be a lot more diligent about preparing the nipple for him (I prefer reverse pressure to rolling) and if I get engorged (usually overnight) sometimes I have to pump off a bit before he will take to it.

That, and ibuprofin. -.-

We try to do both but he may our may not take to both (depending on how hungry, and how tired he is).

We usually use the boppy but may grab pillows if the boppy is MIA ... But it's still a two-handed affair to keep him latched on & do breast compressions!

birdie lee, keep up the good work!  I had toe curling pain for the first weeks while latching my little barracuda - the latch was fine, I just had wimpy nipples!  I rubbed my own breastmilk into my nipples, and followed that with the lanolin cream.  Was miraculous.  And the ever-more-fluffy fat rolls developing are really what make all that night wakings and nipple agony worthwhile.
