We are using a breastshield to aid my baby in latching on, and I have a question for those of you who have used the same thing. Do babies tend to 'spill' milk out of their mouths when using the shield?
When we don't use the shield my baby occassionally has an overflow of milk from her mouth, however, when we use the shield there seems to constantly be milk seeping out of the side of her mouth. It reminds me of when we were using a nipple with a too-fast flow on her bottle.
Is this common? Is it because she is getting too much milk into her mouth when we are using the shield, and she can't swallow all of it? I have a good milk supply that lets down very easily.
