So I'll admit I slack with pumping when my daughter sleeps for like 6-7 hours. I usually sleep with her and forget to pump then wake up engorged. It's been 6 hours and I'm not engorged when I usually would be...am I drying up??

Oh and she is 2 months

how old is she?

you're probably just regulating. they finally get used to how much they're supposed to produce, and they don't go all go-go-gadget milk on you.




Let the sisters take care of themselves, and make themselves beautiful, and if any of you are so superstitious and ignorant as to say that this is pride, I can say that you are not informed as to the pride which is sinful before the Lord. You are also ignorant as to the excellency of the heavens and the beauty which dwells in the society of the Gods. Were you to see an angel, you would see a beautiful and lovely creature. Make yourselves like angels in goodness and beauty. ~Brigham Young

Not drying up st all--diaper count is superb! You don't want to be engorged. A full, hard breast tells your body to slow production. Don't be alarmed when in about a month she starts wanting to nurse more frequently--there's a big growth spurt at 3 months and frequent nursing will build your supply. Are you pumping for work?

No worries for you. Not being engorged is GOOD.

The ONLY sign of drying up is a lack of diapers. If you suddenly stop changing diapers, you've dried up. NOTHING ELSE COUNTS.
