Is Too Much Milk Aggravating Reflux?

Dear Lactation Consultant,
I'm nursing my 21-month-old along with my one-month-old. I've noticed that my milk lets down fast and furious. It seems like it's way too much for my newborn. How can I nurse her so that she's not choking on the milk? My 21-month-old certainly enjoys all of the milk, and I'm wondering if it's his nursing (twice daily) that's causing my milk to come in so fast. 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?
