Re: baby screams when offered breast - help?
Ah, the special joy of nursing with OALD! The baby wants to suck, but doesn't want to eat, therefore: WAAAAAH!!! I had that experience with my second. Taming my oversupply eventually made it possible to comfort-nurse her, but at 7 months she's still not a huge comfort nurser. Until I got the oversupply under control, I had to change up my game a lot. With my first, every time she fussed I just offered the breast and it was bingo, problem solved. But I couldn't use the breast that way with my second- I'd offer the breast but if that wasn't working I had to try rocking/walking/baby-wearing/diaper change/etc., instead. And sometimes I got it wrong, offered the breast, and wound up with a baby who was screaming mad because she didn't want the firehose shoved in her face again.
In your shoes, I would absolutely not feed on a strict schedule. Even with OALD and OS it's a bad idea- sometimes the baby really is hungry, and scheduling can result in a diminished supply- and even with oversupply you can go too far! But I would work hard on taming the fast letdowns (http://www.kellymom.com/bf/supply/fast-letdown.html) and experiment with other soothing techniques, particularly if the baby ate not long before.
