I breastfed my 21 month old until 17 months and had the same supply issues and he had same problems, here goes:
My newborn is 5 days old my milk came in noticably to me on day 3, my breast are now too full for her as she is not nursing long nowhere near emptying (even if i nurse from same side 2 times in a row). She only nurses 4-10 min (the fuller my breast the shorter she stays on, which makes sense because it comes out faster) as of today and she started getting gassy yesterday. She doesnt burp well but even when she does she is gassy still (affraid she is not getting much hindmilk).
I feel like the the first time and never really got it right, not sure how to fix this or make it better! Last time i tried to nurse from one side until empty (the other side would just get that much fuller and then that side would get fuller and fuller each time). I feel like i need to let them be full to register that they only need to produce a certain amount but am affraid she wont get the hindmilk she needs- but if i dont fix now then will continue to be a problem like it was for first. I do lean back when i nurse and she does nurse a little better since if i sit up it flows out too quick and she wont stay on, but this doesnt help supply.
So, what do i do to address this?
I am really stressing about this, i dont like causing her pain...
