I never leak breastmilk ... should I be worried about supply? I wish I would. I know that sounds crazy but I do. Should I be leaking?

I don't leak and my supply is crap no matter what I take or what I do.

I wish I didn't leak as much as I do. I still have painful letdown and he's going to be 6 weeks old on friday. I'm not sure if it has anything connection to supply though.

How often does she eat and does she ever go longer than usual between feedings? I think it has less to do with supply and more with the amount of time between feedings... I have a pretty ample supply and the only time I leak is when he goes too long between feedings. Take today for example, he ate then an hour later took an almost 3 1/2 hour nap.. I finally started leaking through my pad/shirt right before he woke up. It's rare that he goes so long (4 1/2 hours) between feedings, so my body was ready whether he was or not.

i've heard its normal. i leaked a lot with my first but not very much with my second. i dont even need breast pads during the day. the only i time i noticeably leak is early morning before she wakes up. i was concerned about this too but i've read that as long as baby seems content and is wetting the appropriate amount of diapers your supply is fine

I leak a lot less now than I did in the beginning. It was kinda ridiculous for awhile...like my body was making enough milk to feed an army or something. Now, the only time I leak is if we both fall asleep nursing or if she goes a long time between feedings.

I generally do not leak (unless Elli begins to "play" and then stops). One day I pumped over 6 ounces from one breast and had not leaked.

I feed her all the time...I wonder if that has something to do with it? I rarely go more than 2 hours between feeds. She is gaining weight but I guess I am still a little concerned that my supply could be on the lower side. I would love to be just overflowing with milk!

I leak when I gave a random letdown when I'm not nursing her. I have pretty strong letdowns so I can run for the breast pads bc I can feel it coming. Also when she nurses from one side the other side leaks. I wish I didn't bc I hate wearing breast pads.
