I was reading another post and came up with this question: How could you tell when your milk was "in"?
My babies' doctor was always asking me this when they were first born. It seems like it was such a gradual process that there wasn't exactly one moment in particular that I could say, "Hey, my milk just came in!" For those that have engorgement, did it happen like that, all-of-a-sudden?
"Milk coming in" seems to me to be abstract and hard to define, yet its occurance seems to have a lot of significance. Maybe it's my biology though...
So, I'd like to hear: How could you tell when your milk was in?
(FYI, what I learned in time for my twins: A 2-day-old baby crying after nursing isn't hungry; she's nursing a lot to prepare your body to make PLENTY of milk for the upcoming days and weeks when she IS hungry. So, nurse, nurse, nurse! And it worked. I was able to produce enough milk for both my babies without pumping.)
