Thread: Letdown

  1. #1

    Default Letdown

    There seems to be constant issues with this baby!

    I have oald/os, so we've been dealing with that. Had it with dd1 as well. I normally have pretty painful letdowns. On the occassion that I don't, does that mean I am not having letdowns, or that I just can't feel it?

    If there's no letdown, she's still getting the hindmilk, right?

    This is the third baby I've bf, you'd think I'd know all this by now.

    Guess I just need reassurance - it's been tough with this one.

    sorry you seem to be having so many problems brandi!!

    you don't need to feel a letdown for your lo to be getting enough milk. i hardly ever have letdown, especially after the first few weeks.
    how is it going with the OALD? i had that with my last one and it seemed to help if a leaned back in the recliner and kinda let her lay on me to nurse.

    I've been block feeding since birth - one breast per feeding, but that hasn't helped AT ALL. Now I'm on a more strict schedule with it. One breast for four hours, then switch. I'm also pumping a tiny bit before feedings to get more of the hindmilk to her, and nursing basically flat on my back, but STILL getting the green, foamy, mucusy poos.

    Already done about a month ago, along with almost every single other food known to man!
