Have you tried the SNS? I have had many BF problems o/ the past several monts and just did not have much luck w/ LCs here. They too just told me to keep trying. I ended up contacting a BF consultant from medela and she is fantasitc. Medela I think has two online consultants and you can get a better idea of the SNS.
Good luck.
