Still engorged!!!


So I had my son 3 days ago and since he was a preemie i am forced to pump a certain amount of times a day to make sure my body figures out that it needs to start producing earlier than it thought. The problem is, now that my milk has come in. It’s way more than what he eats since I’m forced to pump like every hour so my body keeps making more and more and more to try to catch up. Even after he eats, I pump, AND hand express yet my boobs are still hard as a rock when I’m done and they hurt.

With my daughter, once I got a bunch of milk out they shrunk down and they were much softer. They were only engorged when I needed to pump.

Anyone know why they won’t go down? Is there just still a bunch of milk in there or?
