You're doing great! The early days can be so hard. Engorgement seriously sucks, but it will improve.
It took a good few months for my supply to settle somewhat with my first, and 2 or 3 months with my second.
Bub won't be getting too much...not really any such thing with breastfeeding.
Are you a member of 'breastfeeders in australia' on facebook? Or have a look at The Milk Meg.

Mine are just starting to settle now at almost 7 weeks. It has been the same for my other bubs. I have always needed to use nursing pads the entire time I breastfeed though as I seem to always leak.

Thanks all, that's very reassuring. I don't want to jinx myself but it's very slowly getting easier. I'm just trying to stick it out, I know in the long run it's better for her and (once I get the hang of it) more convenient.. And free! It's bloody hard work though!
