I have determined that I have an oversupply. LO has been choking, sputtering and fussy at breast for past few days. Now his stool is sometimes green. I am very full and uncomfortable all the time and in fear of a mastitis recurrence. He recently began nursing for 10-15 minutes max. He has plenty of wet and poopy diapers. I have pumped frequently to empty the breast to reduce chance of infection and blocked ducts. I need to stop that but don't know what to do. I think that I may need to try block feeding. I understand what to do during the day when he eats every 2 or 3 hours, but what to do at night when he goes four hours? What do I do with the full breast?
Anyone else have experience with block feeding?
Thank you, thank you!
