OK, so my milk never came in on day 3-5 like it was supposed to because of postpartum hemorrhage and retained placenta...I've been pumping and taking domperidone trying to get my supply up...well basically it got to the point where I was expressing enough to meet LO's needs so I stopped pumping and am trying to breastfeed...BUT he freaks out at the breast, constantly unlatching and fussing...needs burping waaaay more often than with the bottle, spits up way more...I'm wondering now if I have issues with oversupply! Occasionally I hear choking sounds but not always...I NEVER have had that engorged uncomfortable feeling and I must be really out of touch with my body because I don't know what people are talking about when they say they feel full, or when they feel their let down. When LO unlatches milk doesn't spray out but if I squeeze it sprays across the room...does that mean anything? Can I have oversupply without being engorged and in pain?
I'm not sure what to do, if I should stop my domperidone and stop pumping...I'm not confident enough that I have oversupply because I don't have that engorged feeling...please help!
Just wanted to add that I don't really hear choking sounds per say, more like high pitched almost striderous sounds and LO unlatches right away after...don't know if LO is choking and if its oversupply, so confused
Sounds like it. My breasts always sprayed the first few months, but now they dont as much, but I still have over-supply and fast milk flow. When I pump a lot comes out with each squeeze. My dd can mostly keep up now, the first 2-3 months were bad with her pulling off and being very gassy.
How old is your lo?
