Too pump or not to pump-WWYD?

So, 2 days post partum and milk is in. And I am very engorged, I feel like I have 2 bowling balls on my chest.

The problem is, I am so big, already, that it's making getting a proper latch difficult. My nipples are totally flattened out, and won't let him get it right.

I want to pump some of this off, so that he can get a good latch, but I know that ultimately that's going to make the problem worse in the long term, to solve the short term issue.
