I leak a lot and also have a "good" let down. I feel the let down quickly when a feeding starts and often have it several times. I also have let downs when not feeding. Earlier today I went to feed my DD who is 11 days old and my milk had apparently let down and I wasn't aware of it. It was literally squirting and spraying and I couldn't get her latched on because of it. After a few minutes of attempting to control it so I could latch her on I gave up and pumped instead. There was no way I could get her latched on with milk flowing so quickly. Plus it was making a huge huge mess and soaking both of us and everything nearby it seemed.
It was very frustrating. I could have gotten her latched on quickly but instead it turned into a 20 minute ordeal. Is this normal? I'm hoping it doesn't happen again.
