We have had a little bit of trouble with oversupply. We had a rough first week and had to start pumping when he was about 4 days old. He had a lazy latch and was swallowing a lot of air when he nursed. He was almost exclusively bottlefed breastmilk for about two weeks while we worked on his latch, but managed to transition to a decent latch eventually. However, I think those first weeks contributed to an oversupply. It's finally started to level out and I was able to build up a lovely freezer stash, so I can't complain too much about it.
