Re: First PPAF & Supply issues...
Are you working outside the home, or staying home with the baby? The reason I ask is that SAHM can usually simply feed on demand and expect the baby's intensified demand to cause their supply to bounce right back up after their period. Moms who are working outside the home and relying on the pump sometimes have a little more trouble: if they want to get their supply to bounce back, they often need to use the pump to mimic the sort of increased demand a baby will give during a supply dip. That can mean adding pump sessions during the workday or even after nursing when the workday is over.
Either way, don't expect to leak in the long term. Most moms reach a point at which supply and demand are very closely matched, at which point they no longer leak and rarely if ever feel full or engorged.
