A little background, I'm a first time mom to a 7 week old & have been dealing with some oversupply & overactive letdown issues for a couple of weeks. Looking back, I think my oversupply issues started when I began pumping daily in the mornings to begin stockpiling for when I go back to work next month. Over the past few days I've been block feeding in 2-3 hour blocks & quit pumping to get my supply under control. Things definitely feel better, but I'm worried that if I go back to pumping my supply will go crazy again.
Is there a way to pump while block feeding without bringing back my oversupply? When I was pumping in the morning (about an hour after feeding) I would get 5-6oz from the breast he hadn't fed on & 2-3oz from the breast he had fed on. Would it be better to only pump from one side? And if so which one?
