I'm pregnant and breastfeeding and I've started to get that feeling of letdown that you get when babies are brand new newborns. I mean, fresh out of the womb and your body is telling you your baby is hungry. It's so strange.
I'm 23 weeks pregnant and DD is over a year old, so that letdown feeling had loooong gone. I just think it's strange and sometimes I feel like I'm going to leak but nothing more than maybe a droplet.
Has anyone else experienced this?

I never experienced that feeling even when my LO was new. Then, when he was about 4-5 months, I started getting the tingly pins and needles feeling during let down....weird...

Well at least you are not soaking your shirts yet!

That's what I'm afraid of! lol I've only had to use pads when dd was very little, but I'm afraid I'll have to start using pads before this baby comes!

I never had it while pregnant, but I definitely feel it now. Even if I think about it it sometimes happens. I don't really care for the feeling actually, especially the depressed feeling before it happens.
