Re: Engorment question
The more you simply put up with the engorgement, faster it should subside. Most moms find that the engrogement stage is shirt-lived, maybe a week or so at most, though some moms do have more persistent engorgement/fullness/oversupply issues. Encouraging frequent nursing may also help- when the baby takes small amounts very frequently, that can prevent you from getting burstingly full. Reverse pressure softening may help when engorgement is making latching difficult: http://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/moth...oft_cotterman/
If extreme fullness is causing the baby to have difficulty with nursing due to a fast flow, try nursing in reclined positions.
