I've been having some big issues trying to feed my 15 week old. I'm pretty sure that I have an overactive letdown, because she frequently comes off the breast and gets sprayed, which initially led to a shallow latch and clicking noises. We've got the clicking mostly under control, but to deal with the letdown, I've been trying to make sure she finishes the first breast. She often won't go back to the first breast after a little while. Last 2 days, after getting a few burps, she screams and arches back (which is odd for her, normally very content and hardly cries), refusing to go back to the breast, whilst also crying because she's still hungry. I've ended up basically forcing her back on, and then she's more than happy to keep drinking for a while longer. I thought this was supposed to get easier with time!!! Any suggestions?
