Re: First time poster - Oversupply without green stools?
Welcome to the forum!
Based on your post, it does sound like you have some oversupply issues going on. But probably not bad ones, because you're not seeing consistently green poops, and you're not feeling full/engorged all that often.
I would start managing this issue by using reclined nursing positions. They can slow the milk flow to the baby, leading to less of the pulling off and fussing- which, by the way, is a totally normal reaction to fast letdowns. Baby starts to nurse and all of a sudden he's getting blasted by fast milk flow, so he pulls off and cries. They he latches back on, and either he gets upset because flow is not too slow for him, or he gets blasted again if flow is fast, and he pulls off and complains. Aside from using reclined positions, the best thing you can do is to accept that most of what you're seeing is totally normal for a young infant. Spit-up is normal and will not hurt your baby. It's a laundry issue, not a health issue. Fast weight gain won't hurt him- it's normal for a breastfed infant in early infancy, and will level out as he rounds the corner and gets towards his first birthday. Lots of pooping is also normal and won't hurt him unless he gets a diaper rash. And gas- well, get used to it. It's just part and parcel of early infancy!
I think you're absolutely right to be cautious about block feeding. Again, it sounds like your oversupply issues are relatively minor. So I would simply continue to feed on just one breast per feeding, and give this some more time. My guess is that you will see more and more yellowish/orangish poops and fewer brownish/greenish ones, and that as your baby gets larger, stronger, and more adept at nursing, he will be less bothered by rapid letdowns. He may even come to enjoy them, and get fussy if/when they diminish!
Basically, don't worry. Do the reclined feedings, let baby figure out how to nurse without so much fussing, and keep a big stash of towels handy for soaking up spraying milk.
