My ds is four months old. He started sleeping 5-6 hours at night when before he was two months, but my boobs never adjusted. I got worse instead of better. By three months, he was sleeping 7-8 hours at night, sometimes longer and I've been in pain every night since. I've long stopped listening to all those annoying people who go on and on about "sleeping through the night" and I wake him whenever I wake up in pain. What's the point of him sleeping when I can't? Still, we're at four months and I still have these engorgement problems. Will it always be like this or will my boobs ever adjust they way all the books say they should have already?
Sometimes I have problems during the day too, every time he changes his eating pattern. Like today, he wouldn't eat much and every feeding was far apart and he didn't want a second side, so I spent most of the day lopsided and engorged. It made me quite irritable. Why can't I find any information in the books about this? Will I be engorged until I wean? I'm more uncomfortable at night than when I was pregnant and I miss cuddling with my husband.
