Re: anyone else??

That's normal. The relaxin hormone is released to help you in BFing, just as it is released during the last part of your pregnancy.

Actually, it's the oxytocin released during nursing. Yes, I just about fall asleep every time I nurse! At least I don't need sleeping meds while I'm night time nursing!
