Hi, me again
Sorry to bother you lovely ladies with my silly questions. I'm in the middle of a feeding frenzy with my LO. He's been at it for 2 hours now. Breasts feel empty - been switching him over when he get fussy in the hope that some more milk will have accumulated in other breast while he's been nursing on the other. Weird thing is, when I squeezed one nipple to check, a little milk squirted out so there must be some in there, even though LO is not doing any more long, deep sucking.
Can I just check - I'm not having a let-down at the start of each latch now - presumably that's because there's not a huge ton of milk in there?
If there isn't a good reserve of milk, will my LO be getting enough from this feed, or should I try to take him off and distract him in the hope that my boobs will be able to fill up a little for him.
Or should I let him nibble away - is he at least getting hindmilk this way?
Sorry if these are silly questions, really want to avoid the resort to formula, which I would normally do at this stage...
