I am scared to death right now! I gave birth to my baby girl on April 12, 2007 and unfortunately she stayed in the hospital for two whole weeks due to some bad reflux, i was determined to breastfeed so I pumped religiously every three hours on the dot. Although my baby was being fed formula, I kept on pumping because I really wanted to breastfeed. When I brought her home, she was so used to the bottle that she did not want to take the breast, she would constantly cought and choke, so I thought. I was then giving her expressed breastmilk thought the bottle for three weeks and decided to try again with the breast. I reasearched on the on why she would always choked and it was because of the overactive let down. But yesterday topped it all, she was not able to cough it out and she stayed blue and motionless for about a minute. Luckly I was in my inlaws house and my mother in law was able to rescue my child, but now I am mortified of giving my baby the breast, in fear that she would choke again, she will not take the bottle anymore.
HOW can I control my forceful let down?! I have tried everything online, do you guys have any suggestions? Please help, I want to continue to breatfeed exclusively
