Due to some personal reasons, my midwife and I made the decision yesterday for me to end breast feeding to benefit myself and baby, I am only 6 days postpartum at the time of writing this. Please do not comment on this if just to be mean that I will not be breast feeding.
However, I was admitted to stoke hospital Wednesday where I was instructed to pump every 3 hours, which has caused my breasts to be overstimulated and have since become quite engorged and can leak enough in 5 minutes to constitute a full feed, with no stimulation. This was a problem even while I was feeding, let alone now that we've moved to bottles.
I have rang BF support and other helplines, but get different opinions from each person I speak too.
I was wondering, if anyone else has had to go cold turkey and had similar problems with engorgement and leakage during this, and if they could give tips on how best to do it?
