Re: Moms with OS/OALD tell me your success story
I am constantly battling this problem. DS is 14 weeks. One session of pumping either too long (like if I space out while doing it and pump 4 1/2 oz. from 1 breast) or too many times in the day (I've tried to add an extra session to have more reserves) and I'm engorged 3 hours later with OALD. I have done the block feeding and pumping which seems to help. But if I'm block pumping, I have to wait like 4 hours between boobs because otherwise I get major OS/OALD. And you don't want to pump for less time because then you only get the foremilk.
On the weekends when I'm home 24 hrs, the problem corrects itself.
I can only offer . Keep block pumping and feeding!
