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">
