Post-partum nursing/boob advice please

I forget: while engorged with "coming in" milk--pump to drain? Or just to where it's bearable? I don't want them to think this is the supply I need. I've done nothing but nurse both babies (efficient toddler & struggling-to-latch tiny newborn) today, and still I've pumped 10+ ounces just to take edge off and I STILL can't close my cups over the girls. Jeezus.

If wetnursing were a viable career path, I'd be a rich woman.

Click here to enlarge That may be, Roadkillhead. But I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the majority of the online EBM market is fetishists, not babies. Way more ick than I could handle.

It's around $2.50-$5 per ounce, from what I've heard. Those fetishists have some serious cash. Click here to enlarge

I guess you could just start a massive freezer stash?

Baby Girl starts daycare in a few months, so it'll get used eventually.

IDK the answer, but I'll chime in to say that I threw away 90 or so oz of milk when dd was about a year. I never went back to work and she refused to take a bottle anyway. Click here to enlarge

Oh, I'm still using it, just slowly. Besides, I figure once he weans, he can get a sippy a day of BM. It's good for a year in the deep freeze, so theoretically, he could get BM until he's nearly 2.
