I have a tendency to produce quite a lot of milk. I didn't know until recently that too much of a good thing is bad. With my son I would pump out 16 ozs total each feeding. I pumped mainly with him b/c I had a hard time getting him latched. Now with my new baby I am a bit wiser and nursing is going better. After a host of problems that is. I've had mastitis and clogged ducts since she was born 11 weeks ago. I also had to go back to work way too soon (3 weeks postpartum). So I power pumped so I could have enough supply to feed her while at my moms. She also had a tongue tie that took two different doctors to fix. Nursing is going so much better and we are finally in a groove. What I didn't know is that me making large quanities of milk is bad for me and her. She is super gassy, sometimes has explosive green poo and I have OLAD, which you can tell she gets annoyed at the force of my let down. I still get a plugged duct here and there, but not as bad as the beginning and my nipples aren't as sore. But while I'm trying to tame my supply, I'm extremely engorged and in pain. I'm currently block feeding and trying to not pump as much while at work. And I'm trying to stay away from pumping at night and on the weekends also. Is it bad for me to pump a little to help relieve the pressure? And how long will this last before I start feeling ok again? I'm worried I'll get mastitis again b/c I'm THAT engorged. What can I do to prevent that?
