So many troubles

So my list of bfing issues:

Clicking while nursing
Fussing at the breast
Pulling off
Refusing the breast
Gagging and choking and then not able to catch her breath until I sit her up and get her to stop holding her breath
She seems excessively fussy even between feedings

BUT she's emptying the breast, pooping and peeling great. Growing. And I have no pain.

I can not figure this out. Tougne and lip tie have been checked for multiple times. Her latch LOOKS perfect. I had to have a LC help me with that in the beginning and it's the same as it was then. I planned on seeing if it fixed itself in a week or so in case it's a growth spurt thing (she's 6 weeks) but idk if I should just call now or not

It sounds exactly like overactive letdown, textbook case actually. :) http://kellymom.com/bf/got-milk/supply-worries/fast-letdown/

Yeah, mama, all those are what happens with over active letdown.

Try nursing reclined or laying on your side
Blockfeed to slow down production, nurse one side only for several nursinf sessions or a givenamount of hours.

Hang in there :)
