    Default Where's the spray?

    I had OS and OALD pretty severely with my first LO who is currently 14mos. Surprisingly I got pregnant when she was only 5 mos. I maintained a low supply all through pregnancy...yay! LO#2 is now 3 weeks and I still haven't had to wear the bra pads I stocked up on! Where is the engoragement, where is the letdown spray??? I am not even leaking a litte. We are tandem nursing and they are both getting plenty...I have never done so much diaper laundry! I don't remember when OS and OALD became a prob with my first, so I don't have anything to go on. Could it be that LO#1 is so efficient at emptying? But with that thought shouldn't I just produce more...supply and demand, right?

    I am definitely not complaining though, it was a huge struggle to deal with this the first time around!

    My crazy spraying didn't start until DD was about 6 weeks old. Then the gulping, crying and gas started! Fingers crossed it won't happen again for you this time.

    ok, so it still may come around. good to know. I may have not wasted money on all those bra pads I am hoping tandem nursing will help this time around!

    Im thinking maybe since BF was already established, so your supply can easily adjust to the increase need for milk without going through the OS and OALD. Just my guess though.
