I'm currently on day 2 of a one-breast-per-feeding routine to try to combat an oversupply. The problem is that the breast that I don't feed on becomes very engorged, especially overnight when my son (1 month old) goes longer between feedings.
My question is... when it's time to feed on the engorged breast, isn't he getting a whole lot of foremilk that will fill him up before he can get an adequate amount of hindmilk? I do hand express a little out before feeding to soften up the nipple, but I don't want to do too much to make the problem worse.
I'm just asking because he was SUPER fussy last night and yesterday was my first day of one-breast-per-feeding. He nursed constantly from 8 p.m. to 9:45. I'm wondering if he is still getting too much foremilk, even though he's only eating off one breast at a time.
I hope that makes sense. I'm so stressed out about this.
