Re: Engorged on one side only?
i had the same thing happen to me. I would wake up with one side super fill and hard.
I would wake up the baby nurse like crazy and I would only use the full side over the next two hours.
i did not express the extra milk b/c i did not want to produce more milk than my baby needed.
I nursed every 2-3 hours, actually more often than that .
I have read that the baby digests breastmilk rather quickly and in order to maintain an ample milk supply the baby needs to be nursed 10-12 times a day; which works out to be every 2 hours.
