If you find that you become uncomfortably engorged, you can hand express a small amount just to relieve the discomfort a bit. Your body will figure it out if you let it.
What's an SNS? Everytime he's hungry I offer the breast first and he'll latch correctly and suck for a couple second then pull away and start crying and I'll try again and switch positions and he'll do the same untill I give him a bottle
