all the time, when full, when I think I am empty, while I nurse on other side. . . probably a total of 15 oz a day!! I have those milk saver things and tried to see just how much I was leaking

I haven't breast fed or pumped for weeks and I'm still leaking like a faucet. I wish I'd just dry up already.

Rarely, and only if Cameron is near the end of a nap (like 2.5 hrs) and I get let down. And its only a very tiny bit...lilypadz contain it.

I was going to make a topic about this. Ileak when not wearing my too small for me bra. Its the only one I have and painful to wear. Out was the biggest bra in the store And it still is too small. If I don't wear it I soak through a whole shirt in minutes. I'm feed up. Ugh!!!!

I leak all the time. Nursing pads are my friend!
While waiting for the shower to warm up the other day I left a puddle on the floor because I was leaking so much. And if Tuckr unlatches to catch his breath I leak down my side.
I don't mind so much. I see it as my body is doing amazing things and my baby is getting all the food he needs!

No leaking here!

Well at night occasionally if I lay on an engorged boob I will wake up with a wet spot, right side only

Yes, mostly when I need to express but can't because something else comes up at the wrong moment.

Only when I'm really full, like at night because Paxton only eats once at night and not much so one side will be engorged and soak the breast pad.

I always leak when I nurse, and I leak overnight and when I am engorged. This just started in the last week though.

With my older two, I only leaked in the beginning. By a month PP, I had stopped leaking. This time, however, I'm leaking a LOT. While I hardly used my breast pads with the first two... I can't NOT use them this time! I chose the option that they "leak all the time", but really, it's mostly just when they are "filling up". I didn't click the "when engorged/full" one because the "filling up" happens whether I'm full or not.

I want to amend my previous statement. I've been having a lot of letdown pains and leak every time.
