In brief: Breast pads

Some women will have leaking from the breasts in between feedings, or if they are separated from their baby.
Sometimes milk can leak from the breasts when a women hears a baby cry! wear a good nursing bra and nurse the baby frequently. Buy disposable absorbent breast pads to wear in your bra to absorb any milk that leaks. Change them frequently to avoid irritation of your nipples.

In brief: Pads

Wearing breast pads is very helpful.
With time your breasts will adapt and not leak so much. It is great that you have such a good supply and that you produce milk so readily. Be prepared with extra pads when you go out, and be patient. It improves as you and the baby become more efficient with nursing.
