I have been bf for 4 months

Is it normal to never feel engorged or full? I think she's getting enough (although she is small), but even when she randomly sttn, I don't feel engorged?

I'm the same, I never feel engorged and rarely feel a letdown. The only time I'll feel engorged is if I go 8 hours plus of not breastfeeding (this happened with my DS 1), because he was sleeping through the night.

Same here. The only time I feel engorged is the nights he sleeps over his dad's if I don't pump overnight and it has been 9 hours since my last pump. But never when he is with me. And, I have no idea what a let-down feels like....

Another momma here that never gets engorged in fact I have to keep a hair band on my wrist to indicate which side he has to nurse on next because I often can't tell and I know my chunk is getting plenty of BM!!!

The only time I feel engorged is when he doesnt nurse at night. Last night I nursed him at 10pm and he didnt get up to eat till 7am. Otherwise no engorgement. I do feel my let downs, some times more then one in a feeding.
