Usually, the problem of too much milk will resolve as your baby matures and is able to handle the flow better, and also as your body settles down to make the milk your baby needs and not a lot extra. Like all other breastfeeding problems, this too shall pass.
If you continue to have problems with leaking even when your baby is older (especially if you are returning to work) check out the BLIS (Breastmilk Leakage Inhibitor System) on the product page. It really works.
