So, I had to be apart from my 5 month old for 6 hours today... it was longer than expected and I didn't have my pump with me. So, when I got home and started pumping my breasts were seriously engorged! Once I relaxed enough for milk to flow I noticed it was backing up all over the place. Leaking out the shields onto my breasts. I kept fixing my angle and when the angle was perfect the milk went into the tube-- but my breasts were still wet with milk.
Anyone know what went wrong? Are the shields too large? Too small? Was my angle just bad because I was nursing the babe from one breast while pumping the other? I feel like I'm covered in milk right now and my breasts don't feel totally empty. I just gave up and focused only on nursing my babe since I was missing her.
