Fussy on breast

My 3 week old daughter sometimes gets really fussy, angry almost, at one of my breasts. It's never the same one, but is usually during the afternoon or early evening. I know there's still milk in there b/c I squeeze and it comes out. Any ideas? She gets fussy, spits it out, cries, tries to get it again, sometimes even bangs on it with her hands....like she's not getting what she wants from it! Help! It's not helping her get enough in one sitting.

She may be gassy or over tired.

Does she cough like she's choking on milk? You may have a big letdown reflex that causes too much milk in the beginning.
