Re: When does oversupply "correct" itsel
The reason you're having trouble finding an answer to the question about when oversupply corrects itself is that there's no one answer. The timing differs significantly between individuals. Some mamas find that they can control oversupply fairly rapidly, within days or weeks. For others, the timespan is more like weeks or months.
Don't worry about green poops as long as baby is growing normally. And don't worry about his intestines. Yes, lactose overload from oversupply can make a baby gassy and uncomfortable, and can rarely result in enough intestinal irritation to cause bloody poops. But these are all temporary things, and are well worth it as the price for being exclusively breastfed. My second born had to cope with a totally massive oversupply and she ended up with months of green poops and even streaks and flecks of blood in her poop. But it all went away with time, and at nearly 2 she is a perfectly healthy toddler who has never had an ear infection or major illness.
