At about 3 months my breasts started feeling much softer than they'd ever felt since giving birth. That was great! This week they began to feel fuller again. I started spacing out feedings, like every 3.5-4 hours instead of 2.5-3 hours since my baby wasn't demanding earlier feeds and I felt ok. Not unbearably full. They also leak a drop each time I feel a letdown (when it's not during a feeding). This is how I felt ages ago, but why did it come back now? Baby is 4 months old, is eating nicely and looks satisfied. He always wakes up about every 3-4 hours at night to eat, but last night he let me go a stretch of 5 hours and then 4 hours, and now I got a clogged duct... I thought once milk regulates, it just basically works with supply and demand so why would I have this "oversupply" thing?
Now when I want to treat this clogged duct I know supply will increase there because of all the nursing and massaging and stimulation it will now be receiving
