This is my 4th baby and I've always had well defined let down pain. Other than the pain I notice the change in the way the baby drinks.
I had a c-section just over 2 weeks ago and I noticed I had no let downs after returning home and no more involution pains or lochia when feeding either. Baby became more and more unsettled.
I have eventually regained the occasional let down, and baby is so much happier and settled as a result. I even have involution cramping and spotting from time to time now, which I think is a good thing.
But the issue is that it's not happening very often. I don't have a let down very often and the baby gets increasingly frustrated and won't sleep unless I've been able to feed him properly.
I phoned the hospital and the Midwife said that sometimes a C-Section can interfere with the natural process, but this has never happened to me before.
Does anybody know what I can do to encourage a letdown at every feed?
