    Hand express until your milk starts flowing and let it spray into a burp cloth [or a bottle, so you can save it]. Once the flow slows, latch baby on. Also, if you lean back while nursing, that'll help slow the flow of milk. The site kellymom.com has more info on oversupply and over active letdown.
