Not getting Engorged?


SO... I have been breastfeeding for a little over 5 months now and have only gotten engorged a hand full of times.

Is this normal? Or am i not producing enough?

I've never really had much engorgement, once my supply regulated. The only times I get engorged, is when LO changes his feeding schedule, or misses a feed/has a late feed.

Lack of engorgement is fine---not an indicator of supply. BE THANKFUL!! Feeding for twins if I'm even 30 minutes late for a feed or pump I'm huge and miserable! You should see me in the morning! OUCH!

Ok, thanks ladies. I always hear ladies talking about getting engorged, but never talking about not getting engorged so i thought something was wrong with my supply. Haha.

I never got engorged with Emma either. But I really did have a low supply in the beginning. As long as your LO is gaining weight and all that good stuff, than your fine!!
