Re: Crazy leakage

If you can unlatch him before the first letdown (the biggest and most forceful) and let it spray into a prefold or burp cloth, then you can relatch him and subsequent letdowns shouldn't be so overwhelming.

My poor dd1 was always choking too. I found block feeding (feeding on the same side over 3 hours before switching to the other) calmed things down. Leaning back a bit to nurse helped a bit.

I would change my breast pads every few hours. I always leaked. I nursed for 10mos and although it became less extreme it never stopped.

Find better breast pads!! I liked the johnson & johnson ones for at home - absorbent but showed through clothes and the lansinoh for going out. Cloth ones were useless to me.
