My son is 4 weeks today and EBF. We have been having a problem the past few days with oversupply. He pulls off and on, gagging, milk coming out of his nose, and only feeds for about 5 minutes. He always sound stuffed up in his nose too.
Any tips on how to overcome this?
Yesterday was hard, but I want to get through this.He was jaundice in the beginning because of a hematoma during the c-section. There were complications during the c-section and I was put under. It basically was a mess. Then my incision isn't healing well-and started to pop open. I also developed a yeast infection on incision.
I read somewhere to use the scissor hold when feeding the baby-would this work with my nipples being smaller?
I was using a shield in the hospital-and finally got him off of it. Could this help with the slowing down the letdown?
