    Talking Thank You Norasmommy!

    I was beginning to suspect I had oversupply issues on my right side. I found a thread where Norasmommy posted this:

    This article posted these symptoms:

    * Gag, choke, strangle, gulp, gasp, cough while nursing as though the milk is coming too fast
    * Pull off the breast often while nursing
    * Clamp down on the nipple at let-down to slow the flow of milk
    * Make a clicking sound when nursing
    * Spit up very often and/or tend to be very gassy
    * Periodically refuse to nurse
    * Dislike comfort nursing in general

    I've been experiencing all but the last 2!! What a GREAT article!! Thank you so much for posting it! It's super helpful and accurate - I'll be working on some of the solutions now.
