Go to the bf group, It might be over active let down. They can tell you how to block feed to help keep the flow a bit slower. I think you feed while your laying back, and the baby is on top of you, but they will beable to tell you better.

It's an overactive flow. It's common in the beginning, or you could always have it kike I do. When you start to let down, delatch baby and have a cup or bottle handy so you can pour into that until it slows down and you can relatch baby.

How long have you been breastfeeding? Your supply starts to calm down usually by 6 weeks.

Self express into a towel for a minute or two before you feed baby.

Reclined nursing also helps! Baby goes over the breast not under.

Reclined nursing: you lean back, she goes tummy-to-tummy with you vertically rather than horizontally, mouth over rather than under the nipple.

It's too early for pumping, and that's not helping the oversupply.et dad bond by changing diapers, bathing walking rocking, dancing. Anything but feeding. When she is feeding, she's more focused on food than on daddy. With the other activities, she can actually look at him.

Diaper count tells you what she's getting. You want 6-8 every 24 hours with at least two quarter sized poops. Anything bigger than a quarter of extra wet counts as two diapers.
