    Default after a growth spurt

    i've had an oversupply and OALD and my LO is going through her 4 month growth spurt - feeding every 1-2 hours (where she usually feeds every 3 hrs). before the growth spurt, I still got engorged between feedings and in the mornings (i.e. supply way more than demand).

    during this growth spurt, i've been pretty comfortable.

    does that mean that my supply has now met her demand, or my breasts will finally even out? Or, will her more frequent feedings increased my supply further, and after the growth spurt, I will be engorged again?

    You most likely will not experience engorgement this time. If you do, simply return to the methods you used to decrease your production to the level of your baby's demand.
