Re: Fast letdown?

Check out the website for suggestions too. I've had the same problem - my 4 week old was really fussy and gassy and I'd hear him gulp and choke on my milk. I have to pump to get ready to go back to work next month, so I can't stop that. So, I started nursing him while leaning back or lying down, so that the flow of my milk to him is more "uphill". I'd been bad about lying him "below" me with my breast above him, so gravity was only making the flow faster. This has made a huge difference.
