I'm a breastfeeding mom too but found that there can be a mix up in figuring out reflex to oversupply..

Quote:
Babies that are breast fed can sometimes show symptoms of reflux, but not actually have it, oversupply can cause very similar symptoms

Symptoms of oversupply can include:
fussing at breast
bobbing off and on
arching back
increased spit-up
reluctance to feed
hiccuping
increased gas
green and watery poos

And if oversupply is the problem it can be a lot easier to fix than reflux

if you suspect oversupply may be the problem, you can get support on the breastfeeding board or by speaking to a trained lactation consultant or breastfeeding counsellor (details on the bf FAQ board).
