My baby is currently 17 days old, and for the past week I've actually had an overabundant milk supply. She has trouble staying latched on, because the milk is coming out too fast, and occasionally it will cause her to start choking. What should I do? Also, it seems that because she has to keep coming off the breast to catch her breath and take a break, its making me really sore. Anyone else have this problem and how did you cope? Will pumping for a minute before allowing her to breastfeed help, or will it make the problem worse?
