Is anyone else experiencing forceful letdown? I feel like I'm waterboarding my poor girl everytime she goes to feed. I feel like my whole feeding session is one big continual letdown. She screams and cries and can't stay on the breast more than one or two slurps (but really, I could probably drop a whole feed into her mouth). I'm at the point of wanting to exclusively pump, but am going to try and make it to the three month mark before I do that.
I'm starting to block feed, but this is temporarily making it worse for her. I've been advised to drip out the letdown, but there is just so much, I have to pump out up to 2 ounces before she will consider sticking around.
1. Do you/have you experienced the full feeding session as a letdown?
2. How have you dealt with oversupply? Was this a permanent solution?
3. How do you deal with a fiesta hangry baby while you try to drip out the letdown?
