I have yet to feel any sort of let down response in my breast while nursing. Does this mean it's not happening? There are times when DD seems to swallow a lot harder and faster. Could that be it?

When I was nursing I never felt letdown in the breast that dd was on. Once in awhile I'd feel it in the other breast but never the one she was on.

Many moms don't feel letdown - no big deal. Yes, when she is gulping that means the milk has let down <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I only feel a let down the first couple of days nursing my new babies... then it doesn't feel any different unless we have not nursed in a longer while than usual and milk has "built up".<br><br>
I still get surprised when he will unlatch and smile and have a mouthful of milk pouring out. It' just so natural it doesn't feel "out of the ordinary" anymore...

I felt letdowns much more strongly with my first child than I did with my second. I don't know why, but I suspect that I had more attention devoted to nursing and every little feeling that goes with it with the first.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
