Question Not feeling let-downs

Is it normal to stop feeling let-downs? I've been feeling them up to a few weeks ago. They've always been uncomfortable, but at least I knew when it happened! I just started back at school so my daughter doesn't feed for about 4 hours at night (she's usually sleeping) but we're still completely nursing during the day and night. I still feel them, but only if it's been awhile since she nursed, otherwise nothing.

Re: Not feeling let-downs

I never felt my letdowns. I don't think its unusual. If she's seeming satisfied after those feeding just like other times, I don't think you have anything to worry about.

I never felt them with my first and I don't feel them anymore with my twins either.

Re: Not feeling let-downs

great question; I've been wondering too where all the milk went since I don't feel the letdowns anymore!

Like others already said, it is not uncommon. Some women feel them some do not. Some consistently, some inconsistently. I usually feel them, although sometimes I may not.

I'm sort of jealous honestly A lot of time my letdowns are sort of painful and strong and when they do a lot of the times it it too fast for Max and he unlatches.

Re: Not feeling let-downs

I had the same thing happen - I felt a little twinge the first month or two, then it gradually went away. Sounds like your experience is perfectly normal!
