Because of the discomfort for baby and I, please give knowledge!
My son currently eats every 2 to 3 hours. He is currently gaining weight well but of course an oversupply creates other issues as stated below.
Having such an oversupply has caused him to spit up (overflow like a water flow) after each feeding, is super gassy, and he all of a sudden wants to nurse often. If I pump before I feed him he does not have such problems so I know it's not reflux. However, pumping before hand just creates more milk! I only pumped before hand to get him at the breast in the beginning but I'm paying for it now.
My question is, how do I get my milk to adjust for the comfort of my baby and I?
How long does it normally take for a milk supply to adjust?
How do I deal with really really full breasts until it adjusts?
(When I say oversupply, I can easily pump over 4 ounces from each breast every few hours. Which also means it does not take long til I feel super or painfully full).
