Re: Help please, ds having some troubles while bfing

I think at 1 month your supply is pretty much still hormone driven rather than demand driven, so no, it may not have adjusted yet. Seems like mine didn't really start to even out until around the 3 month mark. It sounds like you may have overactive let-down, too. Have you noticed that your milk sprays pretty strongly once you let down? Once you let down, it might help to unlatch baby and just let it spray into a burpcloth for a minute until the flow isn't so strong so that baby can handle it better. You might want to read info on OAL at http://www.lalecheleague.org/llleade...pOct95p71.html and see if it helps. Good luck, and hang in there! It will get easier.
