I was just wondering if this is "normal" or if my breasts have ESP...

When I am away from ds I always "know" when he is getting hungry and fussing- I feel my milk start to let down and I think "oh Grey needs me" and sure enough the phone rings and my mom says "Jen, Grey just started crying, I think he's hungry"

It doesn't just happen when it's been 2 hours and my breasts are getting way full either- just yesterday I took ds over to my mom's and I had just fed him and I left and I felt my milk let down and I thought "weird he can't be hungry" but sure enough my mom called and nothing she was doing was working to calm him- he wanted to nurse...

I don't even need a cell phone to know when to come running

I have also had this happen. It is really something. I can also be sleeping soundly and before ds even wakes up i will cause the sensation of my milk letting down has woke me up.

I was completely amazed when this happened to me. I felt such an awesome connection with my little babe! Even now, when he is 12m old, I feel the "tingle" when I am away from him. I usually call my mom and she says something like, "He's Hoo-ing for nursies!" Haha

This just happened to me today. I thought I was nuts. I had a meeting with a new client, and I had to wrap things up because I knew I needed to go nurse. Sure enough, she was fussing big time when I walked in and my H had given her a bottle of EBM, but she just really wanted the real thing, I guess. Today was the only time it's happened to me, and I thought I was imagining things, because it was less than 2 hours that I was gone.

Yep, this sounds so familiar. I just "know" when it's time. I don't get too full, don't watch the clock, etc. It just happens and I know exactly when dd starts fussing that it's time. When I'm away(usually as terribly far as outside!!!! no further!) I usually have that tingling feeling and my milk lets down and less than a minute later dh walks outside yelling, "sara needs boob!" I too am a member of the bf'ing esp club! Isn't the bond between baby and mama amazing?!
