Breast feeding is a messy situation

Alright first time mom here and lactating all over including on my poor boyfriend when we sleep. I try pumping and nursing pads but yet I'm still soaked all the time. Any advice???

When was the baby born?  Generally it takes a couple of weeks for your supply to get under control.  Try not to pump too much - its supply and demand: the more you take out, the more your boobs make.  You want your boobs to realise they're making too much and cut back on production.

Pump and feed on schedule as much as possible.
