Will my letdown always be painful?

When I first felt my letdown In The first few days I thought I was having an anxiety attack, then it changed to a painful sensation. Kinda bruised feeling. I have been struggling to get my oversupply in check but wondering if every time my milk comes rushing in it will hurt from here on out. Also hate getting that feeling in b/w feedings, when LO is sleeping. What's a mama to do?

No, prolly not. It might take a few months, but should go away.

Mine always are, BUT they start out horribly so and then lessen to just annoying sharp prickly feelings instead of the awful stabbing pain.

I felt it for about 6 months. It was worse in the beginning and gradually became less painful.

Great, thanks! We are close to our 2nd mini goal of 12 weeks. I'm so glad to know we will only continue to improve...

It got to the point that I didn't even feel it with my older 2. It is painful with my current baby, though (4 weeks old). Everything gets easier with time (leaking, pain, engorgement, etc).
