    I alternate boobs with feeds and he usually drains one per feed and falls asleep so I don't offer the other one as I just put him down. However, regardless of which boob was offered last, they BOTH tingle/burn simultaneously when he hasn't had a feed in a while. Surely it would make more sense for the boob you didn't use last to start tingling and leaking before the other one?

    Empty boobs fill up faster, once they are quite full it slows down. So the empty one is filling up faster and eventually catches up!

    Mine did the same. I think is is just a natural reaction for them to both feel the same at the same time. if that makes any sense.

    Indeed! The worst is when you're out and you know they're about to flood.
