Re: Block feeding confusion
I didn't thoroughly read all the replies, so if I'm repeating what someone else already said, please forgive me.
I had terrible oversupply, and block feeding really helped me. Block feeding helps tell the boobies to stop making so much (sorry, girls, we did not have quadruplets), and helps baby with the foremilk/hindmilk imbalance that almost always accompanies oversupply by allowing the baby a chance to get that glorious hindmilk. So, Blockfeeding 101!
If I read correctly, you are feeding on one side for two feedings, then switching sides, correct? If so, your best bet would be to increase the blocks. Feed on one side for three feedings before switching. If you haven't seen an improvement in a couple days, add another feed in so you're nursing on one side for 4 feedings. If that has no effect, stay one one breast for 5 feedings. And so on. Sometimes shorter blocks just aren't enough for your body to get the message that it needs to decrease production. Then, when you've started seeing a decrease in production, you can slowly reduce the size of the blocks.
Personally, I was the lady who's supply was so out of whack that I had the "Day Boob" and the "Night Boob". Literally, 12 hour blocks. It only took a few days of that for my boobs to realize that I hadn't given birth to an entire football team and turned the milk faucets down.
I hope my brief explanation helped. Good luck!
