I am confused about milk supply and clogged milk ducts, etc. Last week I had mastitis due to not emptying my breast enough. The dr. recommended pumping to empty. Will this create too much milk? My main concern is that at n ight my little one will sleep 4-5 hours after his last feeding. My breasts feel engorged by the time he wakes up. I don't want mastis again. Do I need to wake up and pump after 3 hours? He is four weeks old.
