Hello. I have had some success over the past 2 weeks with reducing the pain from engorgement/clogs associated with OS by nursing only on 1 side, block feeding, oral contraceptives, etc, however, 1 breast remains an issue. I could actually live with my left at this point. My right continues to become engorged regularly. I think the difference could be caused by the fact that my right breast leaks a lot of milk. I continuously fill up breast pads all day and night (based on a little test I did, I think my breast pads hold ~3 oz and I often leak so much they overflow and it's all over my shirt).
Does anyone have any ideas on how to reduce OS on one side only?
I'm thinking of trying not to nurse at all on the right side tomorrow and try not purposely to remove any milk. (Of course, a great deal will leak.) I don't want to increase the milk production in my left breast so I could use frozen expressed milk for every other feeding. If you think this is a good idea, how many days should I keep this up?
Thank you for all of your help.
