My daughter will be 10 weeks old on Tues (wow how time flies). I went back to work this past Mon (I only work 3 days a week).
I've always had a problem with leaking. If its getting close to the time my daughter usually eats I feel the let down, and if I even think about breastfeeding I start to leak. Any kind of stimulation will bring it on too. i.e my clothes rubbing on my nipples, accidently brushing my breasts with my arm, this is getting uncomfortable at work (I pump 4 times while I'm there) but it also gets uncomfortable at home too because I feel like I'm going through shirts like mad. I do use cotton pads, and while I don't soak through them I definitly wet them and then have to change...again.
Any advice? will this eventually regulate itself?
Also My daughter has been going to sleep at 7:30p(she eats between 6p and 6:30) and usually sleeps until 12:00a or 1a. I usually pump around 8p because otherwise I'll soak myself in the night. I've read that I'm only supposed to pump to get comfortable but if I don't pump all the way I still leak.
The leaking is just getting uncomfotable and I'm wondering what I can do to help it along.
