I frequented these forums a little under two years ago when trying to work through my first baby's extreme fussiness and my oversupply issues. Now we are about to welcome baby #2, and I just found an old LLL podcast on oversupply and listened to it as a very helpful refresher on techniques for managing it. (Here: http://www.lalecheleague.org/mp3/LLL...fulLetdown.mp3) One thing the leader said was that OS can be a major factor in leading moms to quit breastfeeding---I know I considered it many, many times, and the support on this forum was huge in helping me resist the temptation. My baby ended up weaning early (around 11 months), but those last three or four months of nursing were absolutely worth the hard beginning (and the early months were good, too, in their own way...).
I feel much less apprehensive about nursing again after listening to that podcast, but was curious if anyone knows whether oversupply tends to be a recurring thing with each baby, something your body is sort of wired for. It would be good to be mentally prepared, I guess.
Thanks again to all of you who helped me the last time around, and good luck to those of you in the trenches now. You're doing hard work, so be easy on yourself, and try to enjoy your baby as much as you're able.
