Laid-Back Breastfeeding

What Can I Do About My Fast Let-Down?


What are some good nursing positions if you have a fast let-down?




Dear Alanna,

When moms have a very fast let-down, babies often have difficulties tolerating the fast and furious flow.  Some choke and sputter at the breast.  Some pull off and get sprayed in the face.  Others pinch down on the nipple, as if trying to put a kink in the water hose.  All of these can cause somewhat uncomfortable feedings for mom and baby.

So this is what you want to do.... Work with gravity!
