    Default what is forced letdown?

    I was reading another thread and link (on poop) and read that poop can turn green and moe liquidy from an imbalance caused by forced letdown. What does that mean? DS has just gone from bright yellow to green and i have been wondering if there is cause for concern. So what is forced letdown?

    I think they are talking about a forceful let down. This is in reference to your milk ejection reflex. Your breasts have a ductile expansion that pushes milk towards the nipple, this is called your milk Let Down. Some women have a very strong one which can cause spraying and leaking of milk. Does your baby ever choke or cough while breastfeeding?
