    I have a feeling the answer is no, it isn't an indicator of an oversupply....only because my milk leaks from time to time, and my supply is definitely low from supplementing, unfortunately. I am building it back up though!
    If I am wrong, I would be a happy girl! That would mean my own milk is more abundant than I think!

    Hi there, unfortunately, I tend to agree. My milk leaks too sometimes but overall I know my son still doesn't get enough. It's possibly an increase, but I wouldn't assume you have enough just yet. At those times where I leak I let him eat and eat, then I pump the rest to tell my body that the more I remove, the more I need. I think it helps! Good luck! Renee
