    Default Overproduction

    I am totally new to this forum and a foreigner from Greece.
    I found this site very helping regarding infants, breastfeeding and etc. Please do not pay alot of attention to my english , it is not my mother language.
    I have a question to make regarding breastfeeding. I hab=va a 54 days old little girl and I have been feeding her only with my breast milk. I have overproduction and I have heard that it is best to use for a couple of times the same breast in order to feed the child. Today I fed her at 10am, then with the same brest at 12 noon and at 2pm again with the same breast. Pressing my breast after the last feed still edjects like fountain the milk...
    What should I do? Continue with the same breast or change to the other?
    Thank you all

    I'd try 2 hour block feeding 1st.
    and then if that does help the increase the time.

    that means if baby wants to nurse with in the 2 hour period you use the same breast.

    How often is baby nursing in 24 hours?
    hows her poops? Yellow and seedy?

    She feeds about 6 to 7 times daily. Her poop is seedy mustard.

    Thank you for the article. She does nurse at night. At about 11pm then at 3am, then at 6am, 8 and so on.... I allow her to do whatever she wants. She is gaining weight without any problem (in 15 days she gained 1 kg = 2.2 pds).
