I have had a lot of problems with breastfeeding (wasnt making enough and had to supplement in the beginning) now that I am making enough its not coming out fast enough for my son. The left side is fine, he latches good and eats well but the right is a different story. I dont have much milk coming out fast enough so he gets frustrated and a lot of times doesnt latch on well . For the past few feedings I have had this sharp shooting pain on the right breast for a couple of hrs after he feeds. heat doesnt help at all and cold does help a little. Please help!!!Answer Question

Nursing every 3-4 hours is waiting too long. Breastfeeding in the early months should be on demand or every 2-3 hours. Pumping can make breasts hurt in the way you describe. I suggest rest, going to bed with your baby if possible. Nurse every 2 hours or more often and no pumping. Have lots of skin to skin contact with your baby.
