Hi there! This is my first post here but I have been lurking ever since I brought my 6 week old DD home.
The past few nights I have noticed that my breasts are turning pinkish red all over. It's usually a bit after DD has fallen asleep for the night, so I am feeling rather full, but not uncomfortable. There's no pain, or hard spots on the breast, just noticeably red all over the breast. Two nights ago it was just the left one, last night both.
I have been wondering if I have a bit of an oversupply issue. Though I've never felt painfully engorged, even in the beginning, she has some symptoms that may point that way - DD coughs and chokes regularly, latches on and off repeatedly while fussing in the evenings, foamy poops, more than the expected wet diapers, burps like an adult, and seems to be gaining weight quickly (lowest was 7lb 1oz at 3 days old, 7lb 9oz at 6 days, 10lb 2oz at 1 month). Could the redness be another sign of that? Or is it normal? Symptom of something else? I am finding nothing about it online, only info about mastitis, which I don't suspect here. FYI, it is gone now. Seems to just be an evening thing. Thanks in advance!
