I was reading replies to other posts and it struck a question....
My son eats on one breast at a time. He gets full and we alternate each feeding. Things are actually going wonderfully!!
But I noticed someone said you cant overfeed a breastfed baby. What exactly is the difference between a brestfed baby and a bottlefed baby that makes a breastfed baby not get overfed but a bottlefed baby can? Does the formula just expand? ok that was a stupid question but I really want to know
And sometimes mine will finish a feeding on one breast and want more so I offer the second breast and he spits up. But if he finishes one breast and doesnt want more he does not spit up. Isn't this a sign that he got overfed? or is a sign of foremilk then hindmilk and then more foremilk causing too much foremilk?
I'm not saying she was wrong posting that. I just don't understand all this stuff yet. Im such a noob! I have heard that before but since I wasn't breastfeeding at the time it didn't really trigger in my mind until she said it.
Aslo, My LC (witch I'm starting to think doesn't know what she is talking about because according to you guys and Kellymom she is giving me bad advise on a lot of things) said that the state released a new statement that if you have over active letdown that the foremilk and hindmilk mix and there is no need to worry about getting the hindmilk at the end because the baby gets just as much hindmilk in the begining????
