Re: Too pump or not to pump-WWYD?

as said, pumping to just ease the engorgement shouldn't increase your supply - it's only when you pump past milk dripping easily, so your body thinks, oh i need to make more milk! that you really increase your supply

also try showers/hot baths, they can lessen engorgement and you can even nurse in the tub! just soak for a few minutes then have your hubby bring you the baby!
