When does breastmilk stop leaking?! Does it ever?!
I am currently exclusively breastfeeding my lo - we are doing very well, apart from a very fast let down resulting in a very gassy baby!
From 20 week spregnant, my boobs have ALWAYS leaked - and I mean tons.
When my milk came in it got ridiculous, and started annoying me tbh! I'd soak through pads instantly etc.
We are now at 4 weeks old, and my supply seems to have regulated and the leaking has calmed down somewhat, but I am still changing pads constantly - Am I right in believing around 6 weeks it calms down? Anyone with experience of extremely leaky boobs, that eventually calmed down!?! Feel like a dairy cow right now
I never got this far feeding my son by breast, so am pretty clueless!
I'm still leaking unfortunately, Ive got a ferocious let down too, and my supply seems to have gone a bit mad this past week for some reason. V annoying when out, but I daresay I'm getting used to it anyway! I don't know if everyone else is though, I was holding my friend's child the other day and when I handed her back we thought her nappy had leaked, but oops no, it was me... I think she was a bit grossed out.
I am still leaking though I hate pads; kind of like how I hate wearing gloves in cold weather, I find pads (tried them all including washable ones) so uncomfortable so I just have to put up with smelling of sour milk a bit and shower/change more regularly I find for myself though if I wear a well fitting (not tight) bra that is usually enough to stop any major leaks xx
