    whoops! I think my furthest is 9 or 10 feet as well, I know in my old house if I was in the bed it would go right to the window on the far side of the room xx

    Oh no, you ladies are making me panic more about my supply!!

    Lo is 13 days old now and when I squeeze the way you hand-express then only small dots of milk appear on the nipple, and after squeezing for about 30 seconds the little dots join together and make 1 little drop!

    I have been concerned about my supply due to Lo's slow weight gain and now am a bit more worried hearing you guys can actually squirt!!:flower:

    Exactly. Also, your supply isn't established yet, you'll probably firing it across the room soon! x

    Oh I love it when my milk squirts out lol !!!! Sometimes when I feel the let down, that is the exact second that Jess pulls away, and it squirts her in the face! She can't stop giggling, but tries to catch the milk at the same time..........sooooo cute!

    I'm gonna have to measure my squirts now!!!! Great thread.

    Being able to squirt usually means an oversupply; many ladies with a normal supply cannot squirt anything, also while there is always milk in the breast the actual let down usually occurs when baby starts feeding and then milk comes from the back of the breast to the nipple; if you squeeze before the let down then getting a few dots of milk that join together to make a drop sounds about right-this is what happens to me sometimes-I am not firing across the room every time. Most of the times I have squirted across the room is after LO comes off; not before or inbetween feeds xx

    I tried it before I went to bed and managed just over 6 feet. I'm curious to see if it will be farther in the morning when my breasts are over filled. I did make quite a big mess on my kitchen floor! There were at least 3 streams of milk shooting every which way and it also dripped all over where I was standing.

    I cant squirt very far, never have.

    Not measured it but 3/4 feet tops as that's about one sofa where I usually feed to where my hubby sits/lays on other sofa.

    Erm... a long way. I never measured but about 2.5m was probably the furthest.
