Another milk let down question
 
I'm still so new to this breastfeeding thing. It seems like whether I pump or put him to the breast, that I feel the let down after I'm finished. Like this morning, he nursed on both sides for awhile (until he was satisfied and didn't get formula after), but after I put the girls up, I felt the tingles in my nipples. Is this normal? I guess I expected to feel this before or during, not after. Help!

I don't feel let-down at all, but I do get random tinglyness in them sometimes.

It's normal to have more than one let down even if he is finished. It's also possible to have a let down if you hear a different baby cry or to have a let down even if the baby is on tv (this happened to me the other day lol). The amount and intensity of the let down sensation will ease up over time.

If I feel it let down after he finishes, do I need to put him back, pump, or do nothing?

You can try but you dont have to. Your body was just letting more come down and is ready for a longer feeding or the next one.

And holy typos. :lol:

Like Lyndsey said, you can have letdown at times other than right when you start nursing. Sometimes I have multiple letdowns if she nurses for a long time. I will also feel it randomly throughout the day, even when she isn't crying.
