I have a two month old and he is starting to sleep longer and feed less frequently. That's when major engorgement started happening. It seems that starting a few days ago at least one breast is always engorged. Maybe I'm a wimp but the pain brings me to tears. I used to pump when he went loner without eating but now I'm reading that pumping may actually cause me to produce even more milk--making the problem worse. So yesterday I stopped pumping and am using ice packs and heat packs to treat the engorgement. But I still had to express manually today for relief. I am very stressed and concerned about this. I am constantly treating an engorged breast and am miserable. I never imagined breastfeeding would be this difficult! Does it get better and should I be doing anything differently? I can't imagine keeping this up for a year or more but I know I have to because it's best for my baby. I just hope this isn't permanent!
