It's really helped me to figure it out too! It still hurts like heck, but at least I know what's going on. Well, part of it anyways, we also think she has a really shallow latch b/c of a strong gag relfex - but my bbs just make a ton of milk and shoot it out so she hasn't been motivated to self correct.

! That totally sucks Carrie!!
We've had a friend visiting the past 2 days (at least not staying with us) and he just doesn't *get it*. Like, if I'm trying to rock her to sleep, and I need to be in the living room to do so, and it's 8 in the morning and you're waiting for my Dh to finish getting ready and I'm yawning like crazy... don't sit right next to us and try and chat with me in your normal voice!!!
It's incredibly stimulating and I'm trying to get her to sleep so *I* can go back to sleep! He's leaving today and needs to come over to get some things, but I just want to pretend we're still sleeping b/c he's gonna want to take more pics and she's passed out in the wrap and I'm still in my pjs and I'm not waking her up for him and he's not taking pics of me in my spit up covered pjs!
AAM: She's smiling!!!!!
: In the past two days she's started to respond to us with real smiles! Just melts my heart, especially when she smiles at Dh.
