Sorry, it's me again with yet another breastfeeding question!
I saw an LC a couple of weeks ago who put me onto block feeding to bring down my oversupply. I was doing 4 hour blocks and things were going well. DD has now become very fussy. She'll do half an hour on 1 side and then cry and cry. I try to stick to the 4 hour blocks but it's not always possible. Tonight she did half an hour on one side then cried until I gave in and put her on the other side and she's done another half an hour and fallen asleep.
Whenever I ask the LC she says no you have to stick to the 4 hour blocks or she won't get enough hind milk, however even when I don't stick to the 4 hour blocks she's not having green frothy poos, she seems fine.
I've been doing block feeding for about 2 weeks, is it possible that my supply has dropped enough that she can now drain a breast in 30 minutes. I'm size 18DD and the LC insists its not possible for DD to drain them in half an hour but when she's done and starts crying they're totally soft and empty.
Just wondering if anyone here has any input or experience. If you are large breasted did you block feed or do both sides per feed. Should I go with my gut instinct or follow what the LC says?
