When will I stop feeling so engorged?
We learned on Monday that my daughter has really bad acid reflux and was over eating to deal with the pain (which would then make the reflux worse and make her want to eat more). She was eating 8 hours a day. Her doctor prescribed her some pain medicine to help deal with her acid reflux and reduce her over eating. She said to only feed her every 2 hours. She's fully in the swing of that now and drinks 3 hours a day. My poor boobs have been so engorged because of the dramatic change. Every feeding I have to massage out clogged milk ducts and I'm constantly worried about developing mastitis (and sometimes have to pump because they'll still feel engorged after a feeding). About how long will it take before my milk supply reduces enough to where it won't be so bad?
