Barging in from Oct ddc... hope you don't mind.. but you described my problem exactly. This is baby #3 and the issues are the same as I had before, just better managed.. here is what I have learned.
*lay down to nurse, helps slow things down with gravity, less gulping
* block feed as suggested on www.kellymom.com use the same breast two hours of feedings.
* I took tylenol or advil to help with the letdown pain
* warm compresses helped
* relaxation techniques
* let excess milk spray off into a towel before offering the breast
This will pass... my dd is 6+ weeks now and things are starting to regulate. Good luck and hope you didn't mind me throwing in my two cents worth
