QUESTION

Dear Lactation Consultant,
Hi. Coral has started this strange thing while nursing. It just started a month ago and I am not sure if it's do to the heat or she is just too busy now. I will lay her on her side in my lap to nurse and she wiggles off and stands at the foot of the couch in front of me and nurses while standing. I am sitting on the couch and she is standing in front of me. The first time she did it all I could do was laugh and say this is now a self serve pump. I am not worried about it. I just think it's funny.

Is Too Much Milk Aggravating Reflux?

My daughter also has reflux, and I have the feeling that all of the milk is aggravating it (because her tummy fills up so fast). Do you think that's a possibility?

Thanks,
Gwen
