So trying to latch my 7 day ds and i started spraying milk so i let go. But my boob kept spraying like a consent stream non stop hose like for more then 20secs with out stimulation. Is that normal? I do notice he dont suck vary long before he is done so maybe i have alot of milk or crazy boobs lol

You may have an over supply or your body just hasnt regulated your milk supply yet. Look up oal and see if this is you

So that sounds just like my baby :( he does choke time to time, when he is on he is popping off alot to take a break and breathe and when he nurses i have noticed quite a bit of milk coming out of his mouth i have to tuck a blanket in my nursing bra so it doesnt get wet.

Yep oversupply and overactive let down... make sure before you latch you hand express a lil just enough to trigger the let down also look up block feeding

I had pretty bad oal and over supply in the very beginning too. My poor son was drowning!
Reclined nursing and block feeding is what helped me. I started trying to do two hr blocks.....that was a joke, lol. So, I gradually went up to six hr blocks and that did the trick!
Reclined nursing and using a towel/receiving blanket to spray into during let down will help more immediately. Block feeds will help tremendously, but take just a little time for your body to adjust. Mine was adjusted within two weeks I think.

I think 7 days old is a little early to says its oversupply. The first few weeks are like this especially for a first baby. Regulation Should happen around 4-6 weeks.

Block feeding a one week old is premature.

He is my 2nd and i havent looked up block feeding yet and not really sure what it is. When im home i just lay on my side to nurse that seems to help
