    You're making so many moms jealous right now!! I want to borrow some of your stash and your sleep!

    Have you tried block nursing to reduce your supply a bit? Feed on one side for up to several feeds (start with just one nursing session) so your breasts are emptied less often and get the signal to make less. Something to consider.

    Also, green poop can sometimes be associated with oversupply but not always related.

    Are you swaddling? While amazing at extending sleep time. That can keep the baby from waking naturally for a feed in the night.

    Good luck!

    SAVED by LLL meeting in week one. (no milk for first SEVEN days!)
