There are a few things on my mind that I need help and/or answers for.
1) When will my supply balance out with my daughter's demand? She will be a month old in a few days, and while I'm not at all engorged or in actual pain, I do frequently feel uncomfortably full and on the brink of pain. I pump once daily, to freeze milk for future occasional use. This helps a lot when I'm feeling very full...brings me to question 2.
2) Will my once daily pumping cause me to make more milk than what my daughter needs, and therefore make me unbalanced with her? Will it cause me to continue feeling the uncomfortable fullness I described before?
3) When will I stop leaking all of the time? I leak from one breast while she nurses from the other, from both breasts when I feel the let-down even when I'm not nursing, and even when I sleep sometimes. Earlier today, I was so full on both sides that I leaked so much so that my washable pads didn't do any good...my bra and shirt got wet anyway.
4) When will I stop getting the let-down at just any ol' time? I could be walking thru Walmart, just shopping, and I'll feel the strong tingling/burning sensation and then I'll start leaking.
I'm sure I'll think of more questions in the near future. This whole breastfeeding thing is fulfilling, but I've found it's a lot of work to get it going and keep it going!
