Answer: Hi dear,
Yes ,right after delivery,to control the heavy flow of milk,is a challenge.once the body gets used to the demand of baby,which would be less,the milk production would reduce too.meanwhile you can press the bottom of the areola to control the flow.just like a water pipe.how you can press the pipe to save water and direct the flow,similar way hold and press the base of nipple during breastfeeding.you also,extract excess milk before breastfeeding to reduce the reserve.but in that case,milk supply would increase too.

Answer: Hello! No it doesn't effects the supply. But try to directly feed the baby also or give skin to skin contact or else there are chances of reduction in breast milk.
Also you can pump and create a stock of breast milk. Breastmilk stays good in fridge for 24 hours and 6 months in freezer. Hence a storage of the milk will also help u in the future.
