I am still suffering from a lot of engorgement pain. My daughter is 2 weeks old.
Maybe this is normal but it hurts so much. Part of the problem is that she is sleeping 4 sometimes 5 hours. If I pump, I am afraid that my milk supply will increase more than it already is or that she will wake right after I pump.
I feel full about 30 minutes after I do pump and empty. I start feeling uncomfortable again in about an hour.
I am also still having alot of nipple soreness. They are not damaged so her latch should be fine but it hurts when fabric brushes across them. They also just seem to be on fire sometimes.
I had no idea that breastfeeding would be so hard and I hurt so much that I am getting discouraged and feel like giving up. I really do not want to do that.
I am hoping that all this pain is normal for only feeding for 2 weeks and it will pass very soon.
