My son is 6 weeks old. I've been pumping since we were in the hospital due to weight gain issues. He's since regulated his weight and is exclusively breast feeding, yet I've continued to pump after his morning feeding to build up my freezer stash. I now have a substantial stash and would like to stop this morning pumping session.
Additionally, my son used to feed from each breast during a feeding, but I think he's become more efficient at sucking and now is only usually taking 1 breast (he is gaining weight, so I know that he's getting enough). I always start his next feeding on the side he didnt feed on the last time. However, I'm now constantly engorged on the side he didnt eat from - often soaking through bra pads and occasionally my shirts. I know this is not helping that I'm trying to stop pumping right now either.
Am I doing the right thing? How long does it usually take for my body to regulate?
