    Question Forceful letdown

    Advertisements
    My breasts are no longer getting engorged, which is great. They feel pretty soft and all that fun stuff. I have a forceful let down though, Zayne actually chokes from it sometimes.... it's strong enough that if he pulls off shortly after he starts nursing there is a steady spray coming from my breast Will it always be that way or is it something that goes away?

    it will go away once you regulate after 4-6 weeks. i suggest going to a LLL meeting just to get a bit of extra support. you can always express or pump before you feed him so i'ts not as bad

    Thanks!

    I've thought about going to a meeting.. but I'm so weird about things like that. I don't like being around people I don't know for support

    It'll go away. Mine used to spray in what seemed to be like 10 streams. I was at nursing group with Melissa and Adrienne once and E latched until I let down... then pulled off cuz she was getting choked... and I sprayed the people sitting next to me.

    The only thing with pumping beforehand, is that it can have an opposite affect and create more milk and a more forceful letdown... I've done that It sucked. LOL
