I have had an oversupply problem that was a result of nursing and pumping my premature daughter (11 weeks actual). Once I began demand feeding (7 weeks actual), the engorgement began and I made the problem worse by continuing to pump. I have been block feeding for about 3 weeks and my supply has evened out and my breasts feel much softer now. I am not pumping at all, as I have a deep freezer full already.
When I began demand feeding, it seems as if the forceful letdowns and fast milk began. This obviously contributed to the oversupply, as my DD was not draining one side.
Now, however, my supply is evened out but I am getting very fast milk flowing especially at her 530 pm and 8pm feeds. My breasts do not feel fuller at this time either. This is the only time of the day where she chokes and fusses. Any advice? Thanks so much!
