Re: EPing to EBF- major engorgment :-(

If you are gagging and choking him, let your breast empty into a towel at first. This will help with the initial onslaught. I have to do this and my little guy is 7 days old EBF. He gets a shower every time I put him to breast, and I am still having some engorgement issues. I've been pumping just once a day to build up a freezer stash, but hand expressing during actual breast feedings at first, in order not to spray the poor kid!
