    Typically, babies get better able to handle overactive letdown as they get older - mine was a lot better with it at 3 months. Sometimes how they handle the letdown is to allow milk to dribble out of their mouths, which can result in "milk bath," but it's a good way of coping.

    Block feeding has worked great for us. No harm in being lopsided - everyone is to some extent. There's no harm to producing more milk from one breast.

    I had similar issues in the begining (my son is 7 months now) I used the hand pump to get a couple OZ out before a feeding, that way my let down was pretty much done by the time he got going. I only did this for a couple weeks, he learned to manage it pretty quick. Good luck!
