Smile Funny Things that Make Your Milk Come In

Thought this might be a fun thread. I was wondering if I'm the only mama out there whose let-down reflex is triggered by strange things. I have a friend who leaks every time she washes her hands, which is really weird, but my strangest reflex is that I seem to leak every time I pick up my cat!

I'm not sure why holding a cat triggers my let-down reflex! I guess maybe it means I have maternal feelings for him? I certainly don't want to nurse my cat or anything.

Was that TMI?

I've been known to leak/letdown after sneezing. Thankfully after 2 kids that is the only leaking that happens with a sneeze

When I was BFing I would let down for absolutely..no..reason. I got to know the feeling before it happened, though, so I'd just nonchalantly cross my arms over my chest for a couple minutes. Probably looks a little in curious in public, though.
