I think I have an over abundance of milk or fast let down on one side only. When feeding on my left my 2wk old splutters, coughs and pulls back on nipple and ends up with a shallow latch, no matter how good the latch is to start. We also gets windy and grizzly after feeding on that side and it takes ages to finish a feed, compared to right. The shallow latch is also beginning to cause some nipple soreness (that I'd finally healed after big latch problems when she was brand new). I unlatch and re-latch her multiple times, but it still ends up shallow.
Any suggestions? Should I block feed on the left - eg two feeds from left to every one from right? Express on the left side before latching her on? She's generally feeding every 2-3 hrs and takes about 10-20 mins on right but often closer to an hour on left.
The mw had a quick look last week, re. tongue tie, and said she seemed fine. I have been to a bf drop-in (and had several people to house when we had real issues in early days). Counsellor at drop-in said that her latch would get deeper as she got older, but that other than her always adjusting an initially deep latch to a more shallow one, generally things looked good and she seemed to be sucking well. We didn't discuss the fast let-down thing as I don't think I was aware of it as a potential problem then.
Did you read the info on tt? Videos it sound like what could be happening? Tt is notoriously easy to miss and there is a whole thread of MNers who were told there babies didn't have it only to find out later they did....
If you need help with the latch I'd go to a bfing group again. Have you got a la Leche league near to you? Have a look on youtube too at dr jack newman latch.
