I have oal. however I've not had any spraying/soaking through shirts/needing breast pads the last week or so. And this was a constant problem 1-2 weeks ago
I went 5/6hrs without nursing her thursday and wasnt the slightest bit uncomfortable or firm. When she nursed no oal either. 1-2 weeks ago this would have been engorgment and likely would have leaked through my shirt since I forgot my pads.
She typically nurses 3-5 times a night and needs to be changed from a "about to explode" diaper around 4a. If she nurses more then that im to tired to know whats going on so I foget to apply pressure to the opposite side and end up in a puddle. The last week shes nursed ALL night, at least 10 times, with cluster feeding straight from 4-630a and is barely wet when she wakes up.
Her diaper count is about a 3-4. It was a 5-7. Shes nursing still every 2ish throughout the day and drinks 4-6oz water, which shes been asking for lately.
In theory the oal disappearing is great but the significant dip in supply so suddenly has me confused!
In the last month or so I've been on steroid pills, 3 different steroid creams (at different times), antibiotics, zyrtex daily, steroid injection, celexa and ativan. Any combo of these causing issues? Currently on the last 4.
I do have some stress but in the 4yrs of nursing I've been through alot worse stress then right now!
