Hey sri before feeding just express some milk; then feed the baby, due to heavy flow in starting baby gets chocked, so it will be helpful to throw some milk first then feed

Sonali Shivlani

Apply a warm compress and massage the breast. Then express a little milk to make breast lighter and easy to latch. Also the main flow would have been removed and flow will be slower and more steady. You can also feed baby in a semi inclined position or the laid back position to allow for him to swallow the milk better.
