My daughter was born at 39 weeks. She was not jaundice but was still very sleepy and did not eat much. She is 3 weeks this week and we finally reached birth weight at the end of last week. She is still nursing well although I have to use a shield due to flat inverted nipples.
Today, seemingly out of the blue my breast became painful and engorged. I have hard knots in both breats all along the outside. I have not skipped any feedings and my daughter has given me plenty of wets and dirtys today. I can't figure out why I am suddenly so full again. When I pumped after her evening feeding tonight, I pumped over 7 ounces total when I was only getting between 3-5.
I would appreciate any insight or suggetions any one has to offer.
