A little history is that my son was a preemie and I exclusively pumped for about the first 6 weeks due to frustrations and my son having a hard time latching. Now that he’s bigger breastfeeding has become a success, but I am scared to cut back on pumping for fear that I won’t produce enough milk.
I have been breastfeeding at home and pumping for bottle feeding when he is in daycare. I pump about 10-16oz per session 5 times a day (6am, 10am, 2pm, 6pm, and 10 or 11pm). I’ve tried cutting back on pumping, but I get so engorged and it gets so painful.
I’d like some advice on how to get rid of this oversupply because breastfeeding causes my LO to have such bad gas and he has all of the symptoms of an oversupply (gassiness, 10-15 wet diapers, choking when feeding, etc…).
Any help and advice would be appreciated.
