I have had no problems breastfeeding my DS who is 5 weeks old. He eats about 10 to 12 times a day for about 10 to up to 25 minutes a side ( one side per feeding). I have an overactive let down so I know he's getting plenty. He is gaining weight well and peeing and pooping up a storm. I have suddenly become engorged all the time. My breasts feel full, very sore and lumpy. I am breastfeeding just as much as I always have and cannot figure out why I'm all of a sudden engorged. My breast feel soft and empty after each feeding but get sore and full almost instanty. I will pump a little just so my breasts are soft enough for him to latch on but I do not pump on a regular basis if at all normally.
Any advice on why this could be happening would be well appreciated.
