I'm nursing my third baby, granted the first two were only 18 months apart. I nursed DD for 12 months and DS for 24+ months. Well DS #2 has arrived. He has a GREAT latch and is all for the nursing. The difference this time is that I'm SO engorged, it is painful. I can tell where the milk hasn't drained, etc. I'm worried that if he doesn't empty the breast that worse things could come.
He is only a week old today, so I'm at a loss why I have so much milk. I pump when he is done nursing and I'm still getting almost 3 ounces from one side!! I know that he is getting enough as he is pink, and having plenty of wet and poopy diapers.
Any suggestions as to what I should do to relieve the pressure? I'm hesitant to pump too much as that seems like a vicious cycle....
