In this forum I read we can feel the let down. How should I feel if my milk is letting down? While pumping I can see my milk is letting down but I have never felt anything while breast feeding.
I offer one breast at a time. My baby feels very contented with one breast. Does it mean I’m producing more milk? I don’t know what I’m doing is correct.
My baby nurses every 3 hrs . Mostly he nurses for 10-15 minutes on one side.
If I offer my Left breast at 9am then next I offer my right breast at 12pm then again left breast at 3 pm. My left breast is so full at 3 pm.(after 6 hrs) I do not pump between feedings. Does it mean my baby will be getting more foremilk if I offer him the breast after 6 hrs? He was gulping more milk, coughing sometimes and coming off from the breast for a while and going back again. He does not fuss or cry between the feedings. Sometimes his poop is yellowish green but still on the yellow side. I’m confused if it is because of oversupply or engorgement. I do not know if he is getting too much foremilk so I have started to pump 1 oz of milk before offering the breast. I’m not sure what I’m doing is correct. Usually in the mornings my breasts are very full after 8 hrs of my last feed. How should I handle this? If I offer my breast every 3 hrs on the same side then I don’t see any problem with him. I do this only if he is hungry within an hour or two after a feeding.
How much formilk and hindmilk are produced in each breast? I produce one ounce per hour. If I pump after 8 hours then I will get 8-9 ounces. I don’t know if I’m having oversupply.
