im bf 7 week old ds and everythings been going great but in the last couple of days ive been feeding too much on the left side, my breast is now a fair bit larger than the other and VERY leaky and sore, i am trying to feed only on the right side for a bit today but it doesnt seem to be getting any better.
can anyone please give me advice on what might help???
i never had this with ds1 within 13 mos of bf.

Well, your boobs respond to what you do to them bf-wise, so it's just a suggestion but be as equal as you can with feeds - and use hot flannels / savoy cabbage leaves to help you with the engorgement?

You could always express a little from the engorged breast to give you a bit of relief.
