Re: OALD or intolerance?
You can definitely have OALD without oversupply! Fast letdowns are more about how well the baby deals with your milk flow than about the actual speed of your letdown. Imagine 3 different moms:
- Mom #1 has fast letdowns and her baby struggles with them
- Mom #2 has fast letdowns but her baby has no trouble keeping up with them
- Mom #3 has normal letdowns but her baby struggles with them
It's only the first and third moms who have OALD problems. The second mom has OALD, but it's not a problem for her because her baby handles it okay!
Because your baby nurses so fast, is gaining really nicely, and because you still feel some fullness in the mornings, I think that you still must have some degree of oversupply/fast letdown, and also a baby who hasn't yet quite figured out how to manage it. I wouldn't do a dietary elimination over this.
