    It's good to see that there could be a connection between a learned shallow latch in response to a forceful letdown. It makes plenty of sense to me but I haven't read anything anywhere that outlines/mentions this.

    I had a very fast letdown and oversupply with Ds2. He did have a bit of a shallow latch at the start, but it improved after I got supply under control a bit. I found positioning worked ok, but what really made a big difference was block feeding (so feeding from only 1 side for 3-4 feeds then swapping sides). When I was really full Ds2 would feed to letdown then pull off and I just made sure I had a towel handy to soak up the milk, then when the flow slowed I would reattach him and he was fine. I noticed a big improvement after only about 24hrs of block feeding.
