I mean that question in the best way possible.
I think I'm realizing that I might have developed a foreceful letdown or oversupply, especially overnight and in the mornings or if baby has taken a nap a little bit longer than normal. Sometimes he coughs and sputters early in the nursing session, so I've tried to do side-lying and laid-back nursing during these times to compensate. I sometimes try to do a few feedings in a row on the same side as I read that can help. I tend to need to put a cloth under both breasts to control the leakage at let-down, but I usually end up with breastmilk leaking on my clothes and on the baby, as when he starts coughing, I'm still leaking out.
I'm just wondering if these issues tend to work themselves out after time, or if this will be an on-going thing? Will I ever be able to not wear a bra and breast pads at night without leaking huge puddles in my bed? (I hate having to sleep in a bra.) I haven't had any outings yet with just me and the baby, because if my milk flows too fast and baby coughs and sputters, I'm not able to nurse discretely in public. I'd really like to be able to head out somewhere public and nurse easily and smoothly if need be, without my poor baby coughing and red-faced, not to mention my milk dripping everywhere while I try to sit him up and burp him.
Do things level out a little bit, or are these issues I'll just have to learn to compensate for?
