    Default Let down not as active past few days...

    I normally have OALD, but the past few days my OALD has not really been OA. I might feel LD twice a day from every feeding. Is this good? or do I need to worry? I am getting more engorged while dd2 feels the need to sleep more.

    I have OALD and I know that, personally, I don't always feel my letdowns. I have read that this is completely normal too. As long as your LO has enough wet/dirty diapers, then I wouldn't worry too much--you're doing fine! HTH!

    Perhaps your milk supply has regulated to what baby needs? It normally takes 6-8 weeks. I'd watch diaper count.

    I am going to start a count at midnight (when I think she will wake to eat).

    I loved my ld feeling, and have been missing it for 4 of the last 6 months! DD is in the 75% on the dr. growth chart though, and only bf. Apparently LD isnt important to the whole process....
