Overfeeding
 
Is it possible to overfeed your baby when you're exclusively BFing?

Baby knows what he/she needs and will eat according to those needs, and will stop when he/she doesn't need anymore. Your body and milk production is a supply and demand system. So, your body will make as much milk as your baby needs.

Agreed ^ - your baby will learn when to stop when he/she is full and how to cry when they are hungry!

Hi there, they are all right. The baby will stop if he/she is already full and had enough of milk.

Yeah, you need to control the intake of the baby to prevent them from some problems such as obesity.
