I was totally just looking at the LLL website about 10 minutes before I read your post! I'm going to get in contact with the local group and hopefully get some more help from them, too. Thanks!!

Re: Not Sure What to Do...

Can you schedule a weight check for her? I have oversupply and I was worried that my DS wasn't getting enough when he was a newborn because he was always on and off the breast and not that into nursing. A weight check reassured me that in the times that he was latched on, he was getting plenty.

Ooh and I wanted to add to try an uphill nursing position. Lean back in a recliner/in bed and put LO tummy to tummy on top of you. This will help the milk not flow so fast.

We have a weight check Wed.; hopefully that will ease my anxiety!

Tried this tonight and it did help a bit, thanks!! We'll keep persisting with all of this!

Dd also did this. I also had an over active letdown, but she continued to do this until I realized she had an upper lip tie and nursing was uncomfortable for her (and me!), so she would pull off screaming, flailing, kicking... Then latch back on and suck for a couple seconds, then pull off screaming again etc etc.

Just a thought

Re: Not Sure What to Do...

I second the reclined tummy-to-tummy thing--it's the only way my all-business DD2 will nurse when she's cranky and tired and doesn't want to deal with my OALD.

Mine did this around the same time when he was still really small and trying to get the hang of BF'g. I had no idea what was going on and thought he had acid reflux or something worse but that was not it at all. I would offer the paci and that's usually what he wanted. To keep sucking but didn't want all that milk. He loved his paci for those times. But once my supply synced with his demand, and he got better at nursing, it stopped happening and now we are happy nursing together. Keep on with it. It gets MUCH easier after the 1st 6 weeks!!!!

Re: Not Sure What to Do...

DS#2 did this too and I had an overactive letdown. I would try to lay as flat as possible while feeding him...recliner leaned back, laying down in bed, etc. That helped out quite a bit. I've heard that pumping for a few minutes first could help, but never tried that.
