Question re possetting

Thick question - sorry! When my ds possets, I'm never sure whether that's an indicator that he's full and finished feeding, or might want a bit more to replace the bit that's come up? What do others do? (Except for learning your baby's hungry cues and acting accordingly - I'm working on that bit!)

I always worked on the assumption that the posset was just 'excess' and she'd had enough by then. Except on the occasions where she vomited a full feed.

My DS would feed, posset a bit, then soon afterwards would be hungry. He seemed to do more possets if he'd fed really quickly (if my breasts were full after sleeping for a few hours, for example, and he was hungry and gulping), but would need to replace the milk he'd posseted after that.

It probably varies from baby to baby though.
