Oversupply is a condition where a breastfeeding mother produces more breast milk than her baby needs. While it may seem like having an abundant milk supply would be beneficial, oversupply can pose challenges for both the mother and the baby.

For the baby, it can lead to difficulties latching on, frequent spitting up, gassiness, and discomfort due to the rapid flow of milk that they might struggle to keep up with. For the mother, oversupply can cause breasts to become overly full, leading to discomfort, engorgement, and an increased risk of mastitis and other breast infections.
