I have been trying to drop the middle of the night pump for over a week now. I pump before bed (around 11pm) I still wake up very engorged and leaking at 7am. My goal is to pump before bed maybe 1 time in the afternoon then at wake up time and ff the rest of the day. I know it is not ideal, but pumping is hurting my sanity.
How do you drop pumps? Do you continue to pump at the regular 3-4 hour interval but just go shorter times? When I try to go longer between pumps I experience engorgement then too. I have tried using the cabbage leaves, but they have not helped and I am allegic to sulfa (I read somewhere you shouldn't try it with a sulfa allergy).
I am a LVP so did not expect to feel so much engorgement.
Thank you in advance,
