Re: EPing to EBF- major engorgment :-(

I had this and sil said that pump pulls too hard and so makes you keep having over. She told me to hand express til you get comfort /hot shower til you stop leaking/compresses. Feed him on one side for one feeding only and then switch for the next feeding only.... so on....eventually you won't have over.... LLL advice and stuff that worked for me. Keep some expressed for teething and if you have to be away but then I would donate to helping hands and the milk bank. I had a 14 cubic foot deep freeze of milk and so I donated tons. if you donate 300 you get a gift back. It is because of me on that. Hope this helps you. I was told to pump all the time and other stuff similar so I know how you feel.
