Hi! So I have a 1 month old baby boy and am breastfeeding. He caught on pretty much right away but I have a very forceful let down. Too much for his little digestive system to handle. I have been reading some on foremilk and hindmilk...and making sure baby gets enough of the fattier milk. He tends to pop off at the beginning when the milk first lets down and I have been squirting the milk out til the flow slows so it's not too much for him and he isn't filling up on just the foremilk. Since there is so much I started saving the milk ( expressing it into bottles and saving for a bottle feed??) is this ok to do or should I not give him this milk exclusively?? There is fat in the milk I save, I can see it, I'm just not sure it's as rich as it should be. Is it ok to give just on a rare occasion or atleast until I get a pump?
