... try keeping baby to one side for a certain period of time before switching sides. This is called block nursing.
* Start with 2-3 hours and increase in half-hour increments if needed.
* Do not restrict nursing at all, but any time that baby needs to nurse simply keep putting baby back to the same side during that time period.
* If the second side becomes uncomfortable, express a little milk until you're more comfortable and then use cool compresses - aim for expressing less milk each time until you are comfortable without expressing milk.
* In more extreme cases, mom may need to experiment a bit with time periods over 4 hours to find the amount of time per breast that works best.
