Re: Is this okay? Oversupply?
What you describe does sound like you have some level of oversupply. The following suggest OS:
- short feedings
- fussing at the breast
- dislike of comfort nursing
- choking when nursing
However, I don't think this sounds like the worst oversupply problem I've ever heard of. Your baby's latch sounds like it's pretty much pain-free, and that's great. A good latch feels good. It doesn't matter how it looks. And your baby's poops are yellow- bad oversupply often causes green, watery, explosive stools.
So, what should you do? I suggest the following:
1. Adjust your nursing position. If baby is more comfortable nursing when lying down, nurse lying down! Different nursing positions can slow milk flow, reducing choking, air swallowing, gas, and fussiness.
2. Burp her more frequently.
3. Do not pump. If you're planning to return to work, there's still time to build up a stash without risking perpetuating or exacerbating an oversupply issue.
