I am pretty sure I have over active let down since my LO is showing all of the signs that kellymom.com lists.
It isn't severe and I'm trying to keep LO nursing on one side and "spraying out" at let down and then latching. I've noticed though, that it's causing the side I'm not nursing on to leak...and leak A LOT while LO nurses and in between nursing. Like at night, I'll wake up and the bed will be wet along with LO from leaking on her for a few hours.
I am using breast pads to soak it up but they get filled fast. I think I'm going to switch to washables since the disposables are getting expensive. I also read that using breast shields can help to collect the milk. But, won't having the milk sitting there cause issues? I'm going back to work in a few weeks and am concerned with how to control the leaking ... I don't want to be in a meeting and have a sudden wet shirt!
Any help or advice?
