I hjad overactive letdown, and that's what it sounds like you've got. What I would do sometimes when it was really bad was latch her on, then when I let down, unlatch her and spray off some in a towel, or bottle even. . . then latch her back on after some released pressure! LOL! Otherwise, she was pretty much used to it, poor little thing.



Good Luck!!

Hi mama! I just wanted to add that I too would venture to suggest OALD (overactive letdown.) THe LLL messageboards are a great resource for others that have gone through this too - any questions you ever had will be served well if you can visit the site!!!!!! Many, too have posted about OALD - myself includeed below I have added just a few links I found helpful during my experience...

good luck!
