    Just wanted to say I empathise with you - sometimes it feels like groundhog day! Hang in there - I have had to block feed and thought I had it sorted when my wee darling started sleeping 9 hours at night - which is great but I wake with very full breasts and a wet top and bed - a bit of hand expressing has helped with latch on and very slowly my supply seems to be settling. It does take a while to get block feeding going though and my daughter seems to be used to latching on to full breasts and usually pulls off a few times to catch her breath initially but has learnt to cope with this and no longer gets frustrated.

    Sending more support your way and a new post to commiserate. I thought all was well but I am now oversupplied once again with lots of watery-looking milk and a day's worth of lime green stools (today) from LO. I have no idea how to control this problem. I agree that pumping early on might be the root of these problems - I pumped a ton at first and had tons of milk.

    How are you doing these days?
