Re: A strange question about let-down
I just let whatever happens happen, but then pressure has never stopped my letdown anyway. I personally wouldn't worry about it. Milk is available in the breast after the initial letdown, so it shouldn't be an issue if it doesn't letdown again. Also, you may get a second letdown in that breast once the baby starts nursing, but just don't feel it.
I'm also not convinced that it is really a conditioned response. It's a reflex, and stress can modify a lot of different reflexes. My milk would letdown at random times for the first several months. I'm not sure it's something you can control, but maybe someone else here knows better.
At any rate, I really don't think it is something that warrants concern.
