I'm first time mom with 10 week old baby . I have overactive letdown/fast milk flow. I'm trying block feeding forward 4 hours.
He is exclusively breastfed. He is happy and content baby . but he usually needs to be fed every hour. His feeding is usually less than 2 minutes. He's always fussy at breast. I feel I have failed as a mother when I see my little one is hungry but I can't feed him. He screams madly at breast. I tried to extend feeding interval, it was terrible. I don't want to listen those hunger cries again. I nearly gave up breastfeeding. But I've taken 5 months maternity leave because I need to breastfeed him.
We are trying to introduce him a bottle. Still haven't got any success.
I'm scared go out,always thinking he will scream hysterically because of hunger. I'm going down,thinking better if I gave him formula.
Is this normal with breastfeeding baby?
When they'll be able to handle the fast milk flow?
Please give me some encouraging word. I don't want to carry on like this.
I'm all alone at home. I don't worry about house hold things.
Are they extend feeding interval with time, if so when?
Please help me.
