Hello and Congratulations. That soreness you feel in the first 30 seconds or so may be from your letdown. I had that for a few weeks (maybe the first 5 or 6?). I'm feeding my third bub who has just...

chelbychelle replied to topic How were you induced?

I had the balloon. I think your cervix has to be already a little open for them to put it in then it just helps it dialate a bit more before they break your waters. If your cervix isn't open at all...

Every baby is different. What your nurse said may be fine for some babies but at 16 weeks your baby may well still need that feed at 1-2 am. She'll drop it in her own time. Don't try to rush her in...
