Well, I am going to try a new method to try to get OS under control.
American Breastfeeding Journal actually recommends pumping dry then, doing block feeding.
I have not been pumping, but doing the block feeds. Generally, since LO is sleeping at night, I have been doing blocks of six hours. I woke this morning fully engorged again, nursing pads soaked. I have still been doing the ice, even in the middle of the night, and am trying this Jasmine tea, which has not helped. I went through two heads of cabbage.
I got an email from my LLL local contact, I didn't realize that today actually makes the 9th day of trying to reduce my supply.
So, I pumped dry this morning, I am still making about 11 ounces at night, which is about the same as what I was getting before trying to reduce. Granted I have not been pumping, but the supply is really not going down much.
Anyone tried the pump dry then block feed method? I am not sure how I will do this, as one breast is going to be getting too full, just as it has been?
