Re: Please help, I am ready to cry
Your supply will calm down very soon, and your DS will get used to having an overactive letdown. It does get better you just have to set your mind to sticking with it.
Are you pumping a lot? If so maybe it is making you produce way too much. What I used to do with overactive letdown is let your baby latch on, then when you feel the letdown coming have it spray into a towel or burp cloth. Then relatch.
Some babies take a longer time to learn to latch on. The more practice you get the better you both will be. Have you tried different positions? Laying down and football/clutch hold are both really good for your situation. Cradle and cross cradle can be tricky!! Since you're a nurse, do you have access to a LC? She might be able to help more with the latch issues you're experiencing.
Don't forget to use Lansinoh on your nipples, it helps a lot.
Good luck and visit on here often, these forums are great!!!!
