Re: When does breastfeeding become less of a circus show?
When nursing becomes less of a circus show is different for every baby-mama pair. For some, it happens really quickly. For others it takes weeks or even months... And just when you think you're golden your baby reaches the distractable age and suddenly is pulling off the breast every time something wanders into her field of view, or turns into a toddler and is sticking her hands down your shirt in public!
But don't get discouraged. Most babies become much better able to handle forceful letdown as they get bigger and stronger, and oversupply tends to self-regulate as time goes on. Leaking also tends to diminish with time. I leaked like a firehose the first few months, but now that my baby is 7 months old I almost never leak, and when I do it's a drop or two, not a big squirting, shirt-soaking mess.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
