I think I have an oversupply issue but I'm not sure. In the morning when I pump (storing for going back to work) I can get about 5-6 ounces. Also when my baby comes off my breast there is still milk leaking or spraying everywhere. My issue though is that I don't think my he (4 wks old) can empty my breast when he nurses. It still usually feels just as full after he eats. His latch is pretty good (not great - his jaw is a little recessed) but I can hear him swallowing. We've had a few green poops and a bunch of yellow poops with green in them. I've already had mastitis and I'm worried that I will get it again if he is not emptying my breast. I'm also concerned that he is getting too much foremilk. He does get very gassy and fussy after eating. I already only do one breast per session. He stops a lot so I take him off, undress him, burp him, change him and sometimes just wait to try to convince him to eat more. I think he is gaining weight (our next ped appt is next week) - he is definitely outgrowing some clothing. So the biggest questions is what can happen if he is not emptying my breast and what can I do about it?
On a somewhat unrelated note can arm exercises (push ups, etc) cause clogged ducts or mastitis?
TIA. I'm really stressed out and feel like all of my conversations with my husband are only about my boobs.
