A dear friend of mine is having some problems with oversupply. Her DD is having green, VERY loose poops and cries whenever she is nursing. Her pediatrician determined that her DD has reflux and she has been on medication for it ever since (this has been for at least a month and a half). She's still very upset while nursing, though. I guess she's not as fussy at night.
My friend was able to pump 8-12 ounces in 5 minutes (after nursing her DD on one side) and thought this was a good thing...well, she's decided it's not and contacted a lactation consultant, who advised her to block-feed. She has been feeding her DD on the same side for 2 feedings in a row, and then switches to the other side for 2 feedings in a row.
My friend is pumping to build up a frozen stash for when she goes back to work and has been stopping at 6 ounces, in order to try to reduce her supply.
I think those are all the details. She's been doing this for about a week and a half and is not seeing any change. Any advice for her? Does she need to just give it more time? I've never had this issue, so I couldn't tell her anything the lactation consultant didn't.
Thank you so much!
