    Default Oversupply and OALD: always together ?

    This is maybe a silly question, but here it is...
    Can you have oversupply without OALD ?
    My little one seems to exhibit foremilk/hindmilk imbalance symptoms but without the OALD signs... Is it possible or is her fussiness probably caused by something else ?

    I'm not 100% sure about the answer to your particular situation, but I can tell you that I have it the other way around. I no longer have oversupply, yet I often have a very forceful let-down. If you are suspecting something is amiss, is it just fussiness that is causing it, or does she have green stool? There are so many reasons a baby could be fussy, from a growth spurt to an allergy to reflux. It might be helpful to hear if there are additional symptoms along with the fussiness. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

    I'm the same way- no OALD, but one of the LLL leaders suggested I had oversupply problems absed on my description of dd's fussiness and frequent painful poops. I've been feeding on one breast/feeding (if she gets hungry again in 2 hours I put her onthe same breast and she seems much better.
