Congrats on reaching your goal!
1. After 1 month you no longer have a newborn, but a real, true baby.
2. I used to put some gentle pressure on Haley's chin with a thumb or finger. It seemed to make her open up wide just long enough for me to very quickly pop her on!
3. My appetite has fluctuated over the past 3.5 months. Some weeks I'm super hungry and others I'm barely hungry at all. In those barely hungry times I just make sure I'm eating whether I feel like it or not, so I don't have supply issues. I think I am the hungriest when Haley is, which makes sense, since the more she nurses, the more calories I need too.
4. I never felt letdowns at all until about 2 months. Then all of sudden I started feeling them, which was nice in a way, because I knew they were coming. They usually feel like a very strong tingle, pins and needles, and I usually only feel it in the breast she's not nursing on. (I'm guessing the pressure of her sucking causes me not to feel it in that breast.) Sometimes I also feel a really deep pain that goes away after just a second. I think they feel different for everyone.
