DDC- I had to pump off extra in order for DS to latch well. My milk also came in at 24 hours and I had MASSIVE oversupply. For the first few weeks he couldn't latch well if I didn't pump a bit at first. I was worried about stimulating all that crazy milk supply, but it did regulate after a few weeks. I also primarily nursed on one side, my right though. Hang in there!
I am loving having a nursing toddler for this reason! Whenever I get engorged I just have her take off a little pressure, she loves it, it's way easier than pumping and it's great bonding with my toddler during a time when she may feel a little less important. My milk is just flooding! Breastfeeding is the one thing that is going right after my hard delivery and how sick I have been since having the baby. The whole time I was in the hospital I was so afraid they wouldn't let me keep breastfeeding.
