I'm a first time mother of a 3 week old baby girl, so I am full of questions! I think I may be overproducing. I am producing so much milk I nearly drown her at every feeding, not to mention soaking my shirt and everything within arms reach.. within an hour or so of her completely finishing one breast, it is so full that I'm leaking through breast pads.
It's getting to the point where she doesn't latch on well anymore (she was a pro at the beginning!) When she does latch on correctly, she drinks for only a few seconds before choking.
I don't switch breasts at each feeding, because she is full and uninterested after only one side (and sometimes there is still milk left even after a full feeding).
Although her weight gain and output are great, almost above average, I'm afraid that at 3 weeks producing this much milk if I don't do something I'll be drowning her until I give it up because of all the extra hassle :/ I express some of the milk until it stops free flowing before attempting to feed her, but it doesn't seem to help make things any easier for her to manage.
