    Morning ladies

    Is there any way to help the let-down. I know my boobs have milk. Rosie goes on and starts gulping straight away (no let-down) Then after about 3 or 4 minutes she stops and rests and after another 3 or so minutes I feel the let-down and she starts drinking again. As soon as the let-down stops she stops and it takes a while before let-down happens again.

    If it is delayed too long - she falls asleep or gets really fussy and starts screaming

    Thanks for any advice :thumbup:

    I'm not sure as I have the opposite problem which can be just as troublesome, though it is settling down now. I've had a quick look at this page though and it looks promising; bear in mind though that Kellymom needs a major rehaul as a lot of the links no longer work grr
