36 hours between pumps

I'm in the process of weaning and right now I am at 36 hours since my last pump, I am not completely uncomfortable but I do have slight engorgement and some pain.

I'd pump or hand express "to comfort" but not to empty...waiting until you are in so much pain you can't stand it is setting yourself up for mastitis or plugs.

Good luck,
