My son is 8 weeks old and about 3 weeks ago I started waking up at night because my arm/hand was tingling like it was asleep. I thought that it was related to my right breast getting really full during the night when my son sleeps for longer periods between feedings (3-4 hrs). I had been pumping it but that only relieved it temporarily. I have been trying to not pump because I want my supply to adjust to his needs and so if I get up and walk around it usually helps and then I can get back to sleep for a few hrs. But the last couple of days even that doesn't work and now it tingles/hurts during the day if I lie or sit down for long periods as well as when I use it. The longer I ignore the tingling the more bothersome it gets and it actualy becomes very painful. Not only is this interfering with my ability to sleep but I can't nurse in the side-lying position which is my favorite because my baby is so cuddly! Anyone else experiencing something similar?
