on day 3 and am really suffering today. Breasts are huge, hard, lumpy & hot....oh, and painful from breast to armpit. I BF first daughter but never encountered this.
Feeding got off to slow start as baby wasn't really interested for first 24 hours. I have since been feeding on demand which has varied from cluster feeding to breaks of 3 hours. No problem with latch as far as I'm aware.
I feel like I have so much milk in me ( it's literally running out of me at times!) that little one is overwhelmed at each feed and not emptying the breast so am also now concerned about chances of developing mastitis, swell as her not reaching the 'good stuff' and finding it hard to fit her tiny little mouth around my massive boobs!
Worried about expressing as surely this will lead to more over production but as I sit here with throbbing boobs I am keen for any advice to sooth this.
