Q:

hi all, I'm a mom for my almost two month old, I wanted to know if having engorged breasts in the morning is normal? I feed every three hours at night.



Leena Pandyya

yes it's pretty normal for me! experiencing same thing

Dr. Payal M

yup it is. don't go by the clock when it comes to feed. the tendency to engorged or leaky breasts will lessen as body will adjust to babies needs. feed on demand irrespective of duration and frequency.

Sonali Shivlani

Yes it is normal. The body produces more milk in the night due to hormonal changes and hence even if baby feeds well at night you tend to feel heavy in the morning.

thank you Leena, Dr. Payal and Sonali:)
