Re: About to give up
If you have an oversupply and a fast letdown, there's a good chance that your baby can get more than enough milk in 5 minutes. Really! I know it's hard to believe when you hear about babies nursing for 30, 40, even 60 minutes at a time, but some babies get all they need in a very short timespan. With my first baby, I had low supply issues caused by a very bad latch. She took up to an hour to nurse. With my second baby, I had oversupply problems, and she took only around 5 minutes to nurse from her first week or so of life onwards. If you're drinking from a fire hose, you fill up in a hurry!
