Hi please can you help. My son is nearly 9 weeks. I really need to go back to work even if it is just for two mornings a week. I want to continue bf so need to express however the baby has just started showing longer so I'm waking up engorged most days. I know if I express this might make the engorgement worse. Has anyone find that expressing just one feed about 4/5 oz has worsened engorgement? I m scared to do the extra pumping yet really need to go to work!! Thanks

Are you in the UK Laten? If so, have you tried calling one of the Bfing Helplines? smile
