For some reason I have noticed that my baby only spits up huge when she has been nursing on my right side. She has actually NEVER done it from the left side. And as far as size goes my right side is smaller than the left.
I have been trying something the doctor suggested and she has only done it once since then. That is I take her off every few minutes and try to burp her. He said it didn't matter if she actually burped or not the purpose was to slow her down. She does seem to nurse really fast from that side. I hear her doiing a LOT of gulping and sometimes she even has to stop to catch her breath it seems. So is this side just flowing faster or something??? I have never experienced this before.
Sounds like your let down is heavier on that side, which is totally totally normal. Just take her off from time to time, either when yu feel a let down or notice shes trying hard to ekep up When it was really quiet sometimes I could even hear the spray hitting the back of my daughters throat lol.
Dont worry - the let down eases up with time as your supply levels out & as your LO gets older, shell learn to keep up without drowning lol.
I think your letdown is heavier on that side. My son is 10 months and if I am really full and I letdown while he's nursing it still sometimes takes his breath and he unlatches and I end up spraying everywhere
