|And her poops have gone back to a nice yellow, seedy consistency|
LLL has some resources for helping with this if it is really affecting your babe. DD was having thin, greenish, foamy poops and apparently that is common when you have oversupply issues and they only ever get foremilk.
I always let her nurse on the side she emptied last for the next feeding, to make sure she is getting hindmilk first, and then will switch to the other side for the next feeding. Having each breast nursed on two feedings in a row and having the other one ignored for a long stretch of time has really helped to slow down production to an amount that she actually needs.
And her poops have gone back to a nice yellow, seedy consistency. Yea!
The weird thing for me is, I don't FEEL let down at all!! I just suddenly feel WET & then I look down & uhoh, there we go...I do notice that, like you, emotions touch it off. If I feel particularly overwhelmed with love (or worry, or anything), there go the waterworks. (milkworks!)
