    Default Baby gets really fussy when fed from one breast?

    My LO is 5 wks old.... I have OALD and have now worked to the point where baby can take my flow without having to unlatch the baby at letdown. When fed from one breast she still gets EXTREMELY fussy though, after the feeding. She has her reflux symptoms more and seems gassy. From the other she eats well, but not as long, but is content and not nearly as in much discomfort after a feeding. Should I still catch the let down from the breast she seems to get fussy with.... it does let down harder and usually produces more milk, so maybe she is still getting too much foremilk?

    I would try that, yes. Or hand-expressing a bit first.

    Can you (or have you) try more laid back breastfeeding when nursing on that side to get gravity to help too? (Apologies if you have talked about this elsewhere!)
