Say It Don’t Spray It

Once the milk starts to flow, this means the “let-down” has happened. I had a powerful let-down, meaning the first second or so of milk would spray out just like a shower head.  I was also able to feel my let-down before a feed was due, which was a mixture of pins and needles pulsating in my boobs, and the feeling of an epilator with a pricking sensation! If only I could see my body working this magic milk machine from the inside out!

As Sadie had such a strong suck from the beginning, she was used to my fast flow, and although often did a little splutter, she liked it. I called the spray “free milk” as she didn’t have to do any work to get this. I was laughing to myself thinking of the crusty baguette analogy from the breastfeeding workshop, and finally she was having a sandwich! I even rubbed the excess into her skin, as it is the best moisturiser. Just call Sadie Cleopatra, she did always seem to have a milky glow about her! If they were just too full for her to latch, I would hand express them for about 30 seconds into a muslin cloth which seemed to do the trick.
