thanks for the suggestions.
baby fingernails taste good !
i've got nursing pads, but leak so prodigiously i soak right through them when trying to nurse the other side. cloth diapers seem to be the best solution so far.
we are cosleeping. we bouhght a co-sleeper but so far she's spent about a minute in it. sleeping with her on my chest or by my side is just easier on everyone for now. but she won't nurse in the side lying position.
