Do you get that euphoric feeling when you nurse? I think it's a hormonal thing that causes it. I get it when I pump. During the let down I feel agitated and annoyed, but once the milk starts flowing I get this "it's alllllll good" feeling going on......lol maybe I'm bonding with my pump!

That's nice! I only get it once in awhile. Usually it's just business as usual. But what you're feeling is oxytocin--same hormone you get when you orgasm. I'm sure you all knew that though! It's the love hormone. Sometimes I get this overwhelming feeling of love toward my little baby when he nurses. And that's nice!

Rhea, I noticed that too! Especially when he is nursing and sort of sleeping at the same time. Boy I get sleepy.

Joy, I get that same feeling when I am feeding him... Feel SO in love with him. Mostly I thought I wouldn't be able to BF as it was so difficult for me in the beginning that I just feel super grateful and amazed every time I feed him and it doesn't hurt!

Grady has started cooing and smiling at me at the end of his nursing sessions. It literally feels like my heart is going to burst out of my chest. No better feeling!

Yes,I get it too. Its hard to describe but its like a feeling of pure contentment and a release...especially when Im engorged. I feel like a pro now at this breastfeeding thing and confident in my supply. I love when Remy makes these little cooing noises while breastfeeding. I start mimicking him and its like we are having a real conversation...in baby talk that is..lol

This is my favorite. I love when I notice that Caroline has stopped nursing and look down and she has a huge grin on her face. So cute. I always tell her mom's milk is pretty good, isn't it??

Awww my son also starts smiling and laughing except I look at him and say 'go back to nursing you little monkey!'

But yeah I love nursing. I was forced to EP for my daughter so I never got experience nursing. Now I appreciate it and love it. I do get the relieving feeling too esp when they're full and or engorged, it's like getting a massage. Speaking of, they're full now and he's sleeping, I gotta go pump yikes
