    Default Letdown?

    Ok.. this is my question. I normally pump or nurse, but today I decided to hand express to see if I would get more. What exactly does a letdown look like? Does it flow on its on when you stop expressing? Or do you have to keep hand expressing while its happening to get milk out?

    I personally don't get a letdown with handexpressing, but using massage and compressions can still get a good bit of milk this way.
