Hi all, I have a lot of oversupply and have started looking into the idea of donating milk since it seems like a waste to throw the excess away (i have to manually express and massage breasts before feeding several times a day so baby can latch on and drink well).
I am going back to work in 5 months though so I have two worries:
- work related, my worry is that weaning will be even more difficult since I will have extra production established by then that I need to cut down. My work day will be pretty much 12hour days or so, so I will have to wean all the feeds bare one
- oversupply related, I am worried the extra pumping will exacerbate my oversupply problem? if I now pump the engorged breasts in the morning, what if they become even more engorged? will it make my problem worse?
