Weird pain/sensation
Sorry for the onslaught of questions from me lately, I'm a newb to the boob can ya tell? :blush:

My supply has finally regulated (RIP major oversupply :cry: :lostit:). However I'm still feeling sensations/pain similar to when I would get engorged. At the very top of my boobs,almost where they come out from my chest, I get a tingly, slightly painful/annoying sensations, usually both sides but sometimes only one. Right around when letdown happens on the nursing side but I don't notice any leaking from the other side, but my tanktop/bra is still closed so who knows. I've gotten a similar feeling in my nipples. I'm not feeling overly full (or full at all sometimes) when this happens either.

Is this anything I need to worry about?

That's how my letdown felt. I rarely leaked after initial engorgement. Wait til you hear someone else's baby cry in the store and you start dripping ;)

Two that's just normal letdown! Congrats on surviving the worst part!! It's smooth sailing from here.

Another vote for normal let down. It's what would happen to me. :)

That is how I am too. Normal let down for me.

Re: Weird pain/sensation
Yup, way up there. I sometimes feel it all the way in my back. Strange. Sometimes it's mild and sometimes it is so strong it actually sort of hurts and makes me cringe a little. It happens to me when baby is nursing and brings on the first let down. But, it will also sometimes happen if he starts to cry or if it's been about 2 hrs since he nursed or if I'm super full. Sometimes I start to leak when it happens and sometimes not.

That feeling may last your entire nursing relationship or you may feel it less over time. I usually feel it less and less as time goes on.

Congrats on a job well done!! Keep it up!
