I've just been learning how I need to make sure Naomi is getting the cream out of the breast, and that this may be taking longer than I was thinking. But as one side comes to an end, one of these things happens:
Baby comes off, but seems hyper and unsatisfied. (I might put her back on, and possibly even have another letdown. Then I know that breast wasn't finished.)
Baby comes off, and seems satisfied. (That is the only clear-cut one.)
The sucking slows way down and baby may even fall partially asleep at the breast, still nibbling, but in a way that is a bit irritating to the breast. (In this circumstance I feel like taking her off.)
So how do I know when the first breast is finished? If I try to hand express a little milk once she comes off and a drop of cream comes out, I assume it's not finished. If I try and can get nothing, I assume it's finished. Is this correct?
Also, if I have OALD, does that mean I do have an oversupply, or could you have OALD but not have an oversupply?
