so i have a question about the stikky: useful information about oversupply issue. it says:
It takes more than just an efficient nurser to get to the hindmilk. It also requires time and patience on the mother's part and education as to the importance of allowing the baby to stay on one breast long enough to get that hindmilk. The obvious question is, how long does it take? According to Woolridge and Fisher, a baby who is satisfied and comfortably full will come off the breast by himself
but my question is my son comes off by himself (i burp him then) and then he wants back on or so it seems. hes fine if i put him on or will be fine if i leave him off (well ok sometimes) so my question is do i keep him on the same side or switch sides? sometimes he unlatches frequently in which i keep him on that same side.
also how do you know if you have an over supply? i could pump (until no milk comes out anymore) if he hasnt eaten in awhile and as soon as im done he will want to eat and still be able to feed him. this is totally the opposite of my first child. and why is an oversupply bad. it seems better to have more then not enough. also if he spits up ALOT no matter how much he burps could that mean hes eating too much? or could it mean somehing else?
thanx for reading. im off to feed.
