Hello. I wanted to ask a few questions.
Last week I had a gastrointestinal virus and of course became a little dehydrated. After speaking to my LC, I felt that my milk supply was a little low. So I pumped for three days after feedings during the day time. And of course, I then made myself have too much milk. I had to pump for several days to relieve myself because I would get so engorged. So we have a lot of milk in the freezer now!!
I have been "weaning" myself from pumping... Getting through the engorgement as best as I can and pumping less and less each day. Today I haven't pumped at all and its still pretty painful. is this a good strategy??
Also, one breast is producing much more than the other. In fact, the other breast feels back to normal now while the other remains engorged. What should I do??
