Re: Oversupply & engorgement
Sorry we missed your question, mama. Nest time, I suggest creating your own thread instead of posting on someone else's- that way people won't look at the thread and think "Oh, I already looked at that one, nothing to do here!"
Anyway, oversupply can cause pain, but in my experience the pain is predominantly in the breast and occurs during letdowns, and is linked to the feeling of being overfull. If you're having pain in the nipple and the breast now that you're mostly over the oversupply... I'm thinking that there's a chance that there's something else in the mix. Maybe thrush. Maybe baby has developed a quirky latch in order to control fast letdowns. Can you describe what you're experiencing a bit more? Like when the pain occurs, what sort of pain is it, any other symptoms you're seeing...?
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
