Well...I finally switched from pumping exclusively to nursing exclusively and, while I'm much happier, my problems have changed. When I was pumping exclusively I worried about keeping my supply up. Now that I'm nursing, I have an over supply.
It is causing issues because my daughter is having to pull away from the breast because milk is literally shooting out at her...she will get too full from trying to drink more milk than she needs because she is swallowing all this extra that is spraying at her. Then she will fuss and spit up. They say not to pump out a little bit first because it will just encourage you to make that much every time...but what else do I do!! Aside from my daughter's troubles I'm horribly uncomfortable because I just keep producing over and over.
Help!! What do I do!!
