    Default Too much milk??

    My baby is now 2 months old and my freezer is so full of milk!! I've already thrown a ton of it away! I started out pumping after nursing and now I just pump before bed and in the morning. I try not to pump often but my breasts hurt and are so full if I don't! My baby is starting to sleep longer at night and I have to get up in the middle of the night and pump because my breasts are like rocks! What shall I do?

    Congratulations! Have you thought of donating your milk? I too am starting to see my supply growing fast but I am nursing twins and am freezing some. For now I am just trying to see how the freezing goes and make sure boys have enough. This is my first BF experience with twins otherwise I have thought about how nice it would be to donate.

    That's a great idea. I've thought about that too. Any idea of where I could donate it?

    Are you pumping just to relieve or pumping to empty at night? If it were me, I would just pump enough to relieve otherwise I would think you are telling your body to make more milk if you empty completely.

    I usually just pump about half. I suppose I will start to just pump to relieve!
