My baby is just going on 4 weeks, and I was told by numerous midwives while in hospital, that I have a fast/forceful let down. My baby will cough/choke and gasp on the breast and sometimes just pull off and cry and scream as she can't handle it. I was told I could start expressing after 3 weeks also as I had an over supply of milk.
I have seen how forceful it can be as sometime when she pulls off it just sprays out, I am considering only expressing and bottle feeding to stop this happening, as she becomes very distressed when this happens and doe not want to get back on, Im afraid that she will start to not feed well?
Has anyone else had this problem?
Thanks so much in advance
