Re: Thinking about EPing
How old is your baby? I had oversupply and overactive letdown and after awhile my baby started nursing just a few minutes at a time and got plenty of milk. You can't really compare pumping to nursing though. Young babies typically should not be taking in 5 ounces at a time from either breast or bottle. It is much healthier for them to drink smaller amounts more frequently.
Have you tried nursing reclined? I would lean back on a few pillows, put my baby on my stomach, and let him latch. It helped enormously with my OS/OALD related issues. Laid back nursing can take a lot of readjusting and tweaking your positioning to find something that works really well, but it is definitely worth the effort in my mind. Also, block feeding can take awhile to lower supply significantly. It took a few months for me to get to where I was more or less comfortable.
There are others here who can answer the EP questions better than me. In the meantime, maybe try nursing in a laid back position to see if it helps.
