my ebf baby took a pacifier for the first time this weekend when we had to go on a roadtrip. i became insanely engorged during that time, i had been letting her sucking needs be met at the breast.
so my question is, am i over producing milk that way?

If she is getting frustrated, wanting to suck for comfort but getting more milk then she wants you may have an bit of an oversupply. Also, the fact that you got engorged so quickly suggests you may as well. Take a look here and see if you have any of the other symptoms of oversupply (most moms don't realize they have too much milk, I know I didn't for a long time, I thought that was how I was supposed to feel!) Oversupply
