I have been breastfeeding my one month old baby all the way. I have overactive let-down on both sides but on my right, I can squeeze out some milk onto a washcloth before the feeding session and then feed normally. On my left though, the over active let-down continues for at least the first ten minutes of the session causing my baby to scream and fuss. I have tried to lie down and feed but this makes my baby uncomfortable and also is a temporary solution. I also have clogged ducts and blisters on my left side. The clogged ducts go away after using warm compresses during the feeding session but always come back before the next session.
1. I have been trying the block feeding method since last afternoon to reduce milk production on my left side. I have only been feeding on my right because of which my left side is hard as a rock and hurts a lot. Is this the right approach? Will it cause more clogged ducts? What do I do next?
2. Will the above technique cause my right side to produce more milk and eventually lead to clogged ducts?
3. How will I know when to stop block feeding? Will my left side soften? Will the clogged ducts resolve themselves?
