    Those are all good questions. Here are my best, quick answers

    For me, it depends if she still seems hungry. If she does, I will feed her right away. If not, I give her a little while until she shows hunger signs.


    - what does letdown mean?


    Letdown is when your milk begins to flow. When nursing or pumping, it usually takes a few sucks until the milk starts flowing. If you are pumping, this is when you have several "streams" of milk at one time.


    -does pumping the milk shake it?

    No. The pumped milk drips in the container. When people say not to shake BM, it means not to shake it to mix it up. KWIM?


    How do you delatch?

    I use my finger to break the suction, then open her mouth until I can pull away.
    Hope this helps!
