Kudos for you for wanting to try again!
Maybe I missed it, but did anyone mention getting a lactation consultant? I know that it might be an expense for you, whereas LLL is free, but it might be worth it if you could find *just* the right LC, you know?
I don't want to get bashed for this,
: but in MY experience, a LLL that I belonged to was not as supportive as I had hoped (and I was a full time bf, co-sleeping mama--neither of my kids has ever had formula). I totally DO NOT want to start an argument here on your thread looking for support, I am just trying to say that if you SHOULD happen to find that YOUR LLL isn't understanding of your specific concerns, you might want to find an LC who has experience dealing with your particular issues IN ADDITION to attending LLL!
I am sure that 99.99% of LLL are wonderful & supportive & helpful, however!
Good luck to you, hon. You are getting a real head start on it this time & arming yourself with information.
