Whenever I get the let-down reflex it really hurts! It works its way all the way down into my nipples and my boobs feel like they're going to explode! I either have to feed Kai immediately or express the milk really quickly.
Does anyone else find it painful or uncomfortable?
Never has hurt me, infact in the beginning months i couldn't even feel a 'let-down'. I can sometimes feel something now, its a nice reassuring feeling though i quite like it, i know that a second or so later she is going to be gulping down the milk.
Maybe i'm weird but i like the let-down feeling lol
It is probably just because you are fairly new to breastfeeding, with your baby only about a month old. Your milk supply is still adjusting, so you probably feel engorged and will end up with a faster let down than you will in a couple of months time. Also, you will be a lot more used to the feeling.
Don't worry, it will get easier!
I have quite a fast let down and it used to feel really intense for a quite a while after my baby started feeding (and the milk would literally spurt out). However, now, even though I still have a fast let down, the let down feeling only lasts for a couple of seconds and it is not as intense a feeling as it initially was in the beginning.
