Just yesterday my breasts felt all full, barely fitting my bra (when full), one leaking when I nursed the LO (6 weeks old) on the other one and around 10 am, I noticed that my breasts both felt soft. When my LO nursed, I felt the let down, saw her gulping away. About 5 minutes later, she started to wiggle around and when I took her off, I tried to squeeze some milk and nothing came out. That has never happened to me before.
So we switched breasts and similar thing happened, but it took about 5-8 minutes. She started to get vocal (not crying, making little noises) when feeding and moved her mouth around the nipple around. When I took her off, no milk was coming out
My breasts leaked during the day when they got full and now..today, nothing! Literally in 3 hours all changed for me.
What has gone wrong? I read about breasts regulating at Kellymom, but why can't I express some milk after 5 minutes? I am very concerned. Did me going 4-5 hour without feeding cause this? At nights my LO feeds once only. So my breasts always felt like they were gonna blow up and I would pump at nights. Since we have been bfing only (this last 6 days), I offer her one breast around 3 am when she wakes up and the other around 6-7 am when she wakes up.
Help. Maybe I broke something
Should I pump in between nursing, to help things?
