This is my first visit and first post on here, I'm hoping someone might be able to help/share their own experiences.
I am BF my 13 month old daughter. She was exclusively BF until 6months old and then started on solid food. She now BF in the morning at breakfast and the evening before bathtime, and then whenever I get up with her in the night - anything from once to three times a night.
Over the last few weeks i have noticed that my breasts have 'shrunk' back to their pre-pregnancy size, and feel 'floppy'. Although I have had engorged breasts for a long time now, they just feel empty?
Up until a few weeks ago i could tell when i got a 'let down' as she would start to swallow loudly and suck more slowly. This doesn't happen anymore. She sucks at the same rate for the entire feed & the feeds last longer than they used to. When I hand express the milk doesn't 'squirt out' like it had been doing and from one breast it looks like the colostrum used to look.
Anybody have a similar experience?
Thank you for reading.
