So I posted a few weeks go saying my oversupply was gone. And it really was gone for like 2 weeks! Or so it seemed. Now it seems like there is way too much milk again. I am beyond frustrated with this.
My baby is 5 months old, so I really feel like it's impossible that it went away and came back. I wonder what happened? At this point I don't pump at all because I don't want to make the oversupply worse. I don't want to quit (and in reality I can't at this point because we've tried a bottle many times), but she chokes and gags and gets so angry. She was comfort nursing great and seemed to enjoy it, but now the milk is back. She will only feed side lying, also very frustrating while trying to look after a toddler.
Since she is at 5 months, does this mean that she set my production to high again? I find it unlikely that my body would just automatically make that much milk again after stopping. Now she doesn't want the milk. I'm so confused. ERRRRRR. I'm sure it's possible that some other thing is making her fussy at the breast and so sensitive to it...like if she's tired and gets even a drop of milk out of an empty breast she gets mad. Maybe this is just her being fussy and a baby?
