Re: Pumping before nursing?
i think it's really a lot of two steps forward, lne step back with oversupply, and can take months to overcome. i have a friend who, at 8 or 9 months, was still not able to pump even 1 bottle or her os would flare back up with a vengeance. that's partly why i suggested ditching the pumping in favor of hand expressing. you might also try some milk-drying things, like cabbage leaves or peppermint? but be very cautious as those things WORK and at 2 months your supply isn't regulated down yet and you don't want to dry it up too much.
