corrected oversupply :)

So I block fed for about two days to correct some oversupply. Do I need to continue block feeding or can I go back to alternating?
Ever since my supply evened out and I'm not always engorged LO gets angry at latching cause the"chi chi" is so squishy lol. I think she prefers them more firm.
Anyone else have a LO that hates squishy boobies?

It usually takes more than just two days to fully correct oversupply. I would continue the block feeding while slowly decreasing the blocks to see if you can go back to alternating breasts.

Remember that a soft breast is a working breast :-)!

She's likely coming up on another growth spurt. You could be hard as rocks and she'd be unhappy. That's OK. Her happiness isn't your primary task. Not even your secondary task. Tertiary at best. **grin**

This. I had it bad, but I had to block feed in 12 hour blocks for 6 weeks to get it under control!!!! My son likes a fuller breast too. If he's tired and trying to nurse and he has to work harder to keep it in his mouth, he gets mad, lol! ;-)
