engorged af


hey, all! i had my second child a week ago today and even though she's latching and feeding well, she's no match for my milk production (my son wasn't either). she only eats for a few minutes before getting full or choking a bit, so my boobs are constantly full and uncomfortable. i try not to use the pump bc i don't want to increase production, but i do sometimes use my haakas when it gets too painful.

any ideas on how to survive until she's feeding for longer? i've already got about 10oz in the fridge that will probably just go bad because im home with her all the time and don't really need the milk. (also, has anyone just given extra milk to an older, weaned child in a cup? my son is 2 and was weaned almost a year ago. is it weird to just give it to him?)
