    Help! My milk seems to flow so fast it makes LO gag and makes him quite upset :( it also seems to give him more wind as he comes off the breast quite a bit!

    What can I do to help?

    Xx

    Ps LO is 11 days old.

    I had this at beginning. I found pumping or hand expressing just to get the let down then after that the flow slows down considerably!

    Congrats on your new bundle! :flower:

    I'm at this stage too and I feel so sorry for baba when he gets winds because of it! I'm going to try expressing a bit before feeds!

    I get this. Today I managed to squirt it all over her face as she pulled away :blush: I've started trying to hand express a bit before I feed her, but I don't usually keep it for her as it's just the watery foremilk
