  • YES! Heehee. I would always hold a cup over the other nipple just to catch extra drippage. Now I just push in on the nipple I am not nursing on with my finger and that stops the flow unless I really haven't fed in a while. Sometimes it is entertaining though, to go shirtless when your letdown comes and spin. I'm a sprinkler! lol ;)

  • The leaky phase did not last very long, maybe 2 months. A bit of inconvenience in exchange for being able to provide my baby with the best possible nutrition? Only someone really selfish would care...

  • I only leaked if I missed a feed usually first thing in the morning when hubby would bottle feed so i could sleep in.

  • I've been leaking for 10 months and no, I don't find it annoying. I find it AMAZING that I can make my kids food! I <3 the human body!

  • I love it too, I guess it's only annoying when you wake up all wet and have to change clothes or something... heh

  • I actually find it funny. I hadn't leaked in MONTHS, but the other day I was at my neighbors house and she said something really funny. I laughed so hard that my shirt was soaked with milk. So of course that got us laughing again and her husband walked in and got so embarrassed! I think it is hilarious!

  • LOL well I did find it annoying that I would leak and that I needed to wear bra all of the time... but I had beastpads that works well so I didn't feel like I was soaked at all. Sometimes though if they slipped it was a promlem.
    The leaks were worse when he was younger though... not as much when he was older.
