So I have a two week old, and am still getting the hang of breastfeeding...
I pump about 3 times a day, and I usually do it while feeding since I leak like Niagara Falls from the breast she is not latched on. I do get help at night feeding her by my husband but I cant seem to take advantage of a good rest with this engorgement! 4 or 5 hours into sleeping I wake up soaking wet and with rock hard boobs. I pump for roughly 10min on each side and go back to sleep. Is this something that is going to go on for the whole time that I am going to breastfeed?? I don't see the joy of her sleeping through the night if I'm still going to have to get up to pump. lol
Anything I can do to get my breast to settle down? I'm hoping that this engorgement is something temporary, but I'm not sure since I wasn't warned about the constant engorgement...only the initial one w/in the first few days of milk coming in.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
