    Question Anyone have this happen to them?????

    Over the past few days when I feed my 6 week old, my whole entire breast turns red. When I say red, it is like broken capillaries, like when you get a rug burn, or hickey.......

    After she finishes eating it goes away in about 5 minutes.

    I am not feeling any let down (only felt that the first week of bf and have not felt it since)

    What in the world is happening?

    When your body makes milk it uses extra blood to carry the nutrients. Maybe you are just really red from that. I have never heard of this??? As long as it is not painful and your supply is good then you should be fine. Many women do not experience any feeling upon LD.
