Breastmilk oversupply
I am having breastmilk oversupply and fast letdown. my baby is gulping fast and choking whenever i feed him. due to heavy milk supply baby feeds only for few minutes and then stops he is unable to feed well. i tried expressing milk before feeding but only after pumping for half hour the force reduces. this is incresing my milk. what should i do. i cry evertime while feeding him after seeing him suffer. nobody understamds my situation i feel depressed always not even able to eat food.

First of all, don't get depressed as you are blessed to get sufficient milk/oversupply for baby. Press and hold finger on nipple or use a cloth to reduce the milk pressure. You can breast pump very early in morning and before you sleep so that you can avoid milk leakages. And also massage your breast with warm water to give you some relaxation. I followed the same.Hope it helps.

Press your nipple between your index and middle finger, it will decrease the speed and also if you thought that supply is increasing, you can stop the supply after every 5 secs.. it will normalize the pressure

try to feed in lying down position. it decreases fast letdown.
