    Over Active Let Down

    http://www.kellymom.com/bf/supply/fast-letdown.html

    Basically - when the milk "lets down" it is very forceful and baby may have a hard time nursing through the let down. Sorta like if you were trying to drink out of a fire hose

    I had OALD - when my LO was a newborn he'd pop off the breast during let down and I'd catch the spray in a burp cloth and then help LO latch back on when the big spray was done.
