In the middle of the night, sometimes in the morning. When DS will bf on one side, sometimes the opposite side will spray... and sometimes when he moves his mouth the poor Guy will get sprayed in the head. It can be so annoying..
Is this a normal thing :p

It's called overactive letdown. Try doing reminded nursing or baby on top while he nurses it will help him to be able to handle the flow. I either catch the other sides spray in a towel or I wear a breast pad on the other side while I'm out.

normal! It will regulate as you keep nursing. Try block feeding if this a regular occurance because that wil help bring down milk overproduction.
