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

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
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).
