After speaking with a lactation consultant, it appears this is what I have! And why I have had so much difficulty with breast feeding my kids and keeping my supply up. I wish I had learned this ages ago It also explains why I am doing better with 'switch nursing' and having Killian nurse 5-8 minutes a side. We discussed that my second let down probably takes longer, so the feeling lasts longer. By switching sides it allows the let down to happen faster and decreases the amount of time for the hormones to be out of whack.

I don't feel the sadness. I get anxiety, like I just HAVE to stop feeding ASAP. This is the feeling I get when they are comfort nursing and when I am pumping. So, that is why pumping one side and feeding on the other side at the same time works better for me, the let down happens right away.

It is SUCH a relief to know I am not crazy ad that I am not the only woman out there that doesn't really enjoy some parts of breast feeding

That is REALLY good information to have. I bet there are a lot of women out there that would benefit from this information.

Right before my let down I get hungry, my stomach feels empty and I think I could eat the Moon. Even when I am not nursing, I know a let down is coming because I am suddenly starving.

I'm glad you found out this info though, I bet it helps just knowing WHY you feel that way.

Oh it talked about the food connection and let down. It is because food is associated with happy thoughts or something like that.

Some things I have already noticed, if I distract myself it is not as bad. I am so happy I found this out. It makes me wonder about some of the women that really just hate breastfeeding, if they maybe have this too.

I found this some time ago when I was having issues with a strange sensation which I think is my milk flowing.. that's a lot to work through, kudos for doing the best for your baby
