Re: Still feeling really full after pumping???
with the PP. It seems like an obvious time to pump, but it's actually a good time to leave your breasts alone. Most moms start out making too much milk, and if you pump, you risk perpetuating or exacerbating that problem. And it is a problem: making too much milk can be uncomfortable, is a waste of your body's energy, puts you at increased risk for plugged ducts or mastitis, and can result in very fast letdowns that are difficult for the baby to handle. Let your milk supply settle down a bit, and then start judicious pumping.
