I've searched this site but couldn't find anything that addressed my question. My son is about 2.5 weeks old and every time I nurse him I get this weird feeling of panic and sadness right before I feel the milk let-down. I have been treated in the past for panic-disorder and it almost feels like the start of a panic attack. But it only lasts 5-10 seconds and then subsides. I suspect its some sort of chemical/hormonal thing. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it something that I am going to have to deal with throught my breastfeeding career or will it go away once my hormones settle down post-pregnancy? I am enjoying nursing my sweet little boy, but I really hate this feeling. Everyone has always told me how breastfeeding is supposed to give you a happy, relaxed feeling so I kind of feel like a freak!
Thanks for any insight!
