Re: Getting to much milk
Wow, that's a LOT of milk! I think the advice you got- to "go for as long as your milk is coming plus 5 mintues" is part of what is getting you into trouble. That extra five minutes is telling your body that every last drop of the milk it just made was required, and that it should be replaced with an equivalent amount, or maybe even more. I would definitely cut out that extra 5 minutes, and try to scale back each session by a just an oz or two at a time, as the PP suggested. Leaving milk in the breast will tell your body that it didn't need to make as much as it did, and that should eventually result in decreased production.
