I'm 1 week post partum and just finished my 3rd day of rocks for boobs. What stage is everyone else at? I need some encouragement!

I'm still engorged (10 days in)... doesn't seem to be quite as bad as how I was with Jacob though, I was spraying milk every where with him! This time I don't seem to need breast pads.

5 weeks in and I'm squirting breastmilk everywhere. I just had a let down in the shower and realized I was squirting all over the shower wall roflmbo.

Engorgement didn't last long for me. I really dislike the tingly feeling when I'm about to let down, and dread the leaking I may or may not get with that feeling (usually when I'm not wearing a breast pad).

Mine were like rocks for a couple of days until yesterday. That seems to have stopped now. They leak everywhere though, I'm going through breast pads like nobody's business, and I'm expressing every 3 hours in the day and once when I get up with Michaela in the night!!

I had rocks for boobs from Days 3-5, and then they started regulating. At 3 weeks PP, they feel good but do get engorged at night a bit, if I go even 3 hours without feeding. And they leak a little here and there.

Engorgement didn't last too long. I do get let down at the most random times...thank goodness for lilypadz! They are huge though and I'm still getting used to them

i haven't had any engorgement this time. I have been leaking a little from the left side for the last week or so.
I've missed giant milkin' boobs; they drive DH to distraction even more than usual and look great in low cut tops. Wish they always looked this way.

I had engorgement for one day then everything regulated. I don't even feel too full if he's gone without eating for hours. I don't leak a ton but my let down can be kinda strong. He's a big boy though, he can handle it unless he's sleepy, then he kinda chokes a bit.

My engorgement was so bad, I woke up in the night crying on more then one occasion because they hurt soooo bad. I think it mostly went away by day 11 or so if I remember correctly. Of course Oz has started feeding more frequently in the day and going longer at night (4-5 hours) so my boobs keep getting engorged at night but I'm sure it will even out eventually .

I am jealous of you all leaking and such. I am producing but not a ton. They seem to fill up after he feeds. Staring pumping today.

I have light leaking and sore nipples from improper latch. I never had engorgement.

I didn't get engorged too badly this time around. I was a little sore the first week but now everything's pretty "normal". I think it's because I was nursing my first well into the pregnancy so it isn't quite as tough as when I nursed the first time around---thankfully--that was really tough!

No real engorgement nor leaking but I do hate that painful let down. Thankfully I don't leak much if at all when it happens. I notice that I let down about every 90 mins or when he cries hard. My nipples can still get sore though. That sucks.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

Mine are huge! To the point where my waist is just about at pre-pregnancy size but even my loose topes don't fit... and if they do even conservative tops look obscene... It's embarrassing how giant my boobs are!
Thank you Bokkechick for my siggy!

Mine are finally regulating. I was engorged, even after I would feed her, for about 3-5 days. . . And then we got thrush and my supply took a bit of a dip. It's back up now but they don't get engorged, thankfully. If it's been around 2.5-3 hours since she last ate, I can feel it. I leak all the time - I have to always wear breast pads because I'll leak randomly. And I can feel when it's about to happen. Adalyn usually nurses on just one side at night and this week started nursing on both sides during most day time feeds.

Huge leaky boobs. I was only engorged the day of and day after my milk came in. It leveled out pretty fast. I too am thankful for Lillypadz. I would have gone through 5 boxes of disposable breastpads already. At night I am lazy and don't want to deal with breastpads, so I sleep in a tank with a shelf bra and just toss a prefold diaper or wash clothes in my shirt to catch the mess.

I also have trouble not being boobalicious in all of my clothes. I put on a typical Vneck today. Not a deep vneck, just enough to show my collar bone. Welp, I can't even wear shirts that show the collar bone right now unless I want my boobies hanging out. Cleavage up to my chin these days. Geeeez.

oh my god lol.
and leaky jeezus!
thank go for breast pads!!!
they hurt but not crazy bad. i am 5 days PP and they are just massive. like barely fit in my shirts! but my boy loves them. i have finally figured out how to regulate him so they arent both so bad.
i never had any instruction with this so i am flying by the seat of my pants, him and i are working on it together. we are a good team.
i have sore nipples a little.
im not sure if its an improper latch or if its normal, they dont hurt all the time just for the first 30-45 seconds or so when he starts to nurse. they have cracked a little which makes them tender but i have lansinoh cream and it helps. plus cold packs are awesome.
