Breastfeeding and poo’s

Hi! Bubs 2 weeks and 3 days old and is breastfed. I have quite a large supply of milk and also express once a day to help with engorging and get around 200ml. I’m feeding on demand and feel like I’m feeding hourly during the day, is anyone else in the same position? Also she is pooping at every feed almost and it’s quite watery. My first was mixed fed so his were a lot thicker. Is this normal?

I was told to avoid pumping because it will make you more engorged and make more milk. Only take the top off to be comfortable if you are super uncomfortable, your milk will regulate fully by 6 weeks, but quicker if you let baby sort it out for you

I am on the same boat, feeding on demand and he feeds nearly every hour and a half! Completely normal, my bubs is only feeding for around 5-8 minutes at a time. But seems to do 3-4 hour stretches at night so I am assuming he is getting as much as he needs. Watery poop is complete normal also for BF babies!
