I've been breastfeeding my daughter for 3 & a half weeks since she was born & my breasts have always 'refilled' quickly & I've been using several breast pads throughout the day. Yesterday I noticed that my breasts never got anywhere near as full inbetween feeds and I woke up this morning and they were still 'flat'(she slept for 5hours ish). I've been breastfeeding her all day and have been using the same breast pads since yesterday morn. she seems content but has sometimes fed just 45 mins after her last feed & she usually feeds every 2-3 hrs(until yesterday). I don't know if this is a reason my breasts haven't been full (though she doesn't always take the second breast), or if its a sign that there isn't as much in them, hence her eating more often because she's not getting a lot. Is it common for milk flow to stop, around this time or any time? Anything I can do? Or is this normal and i'm being paranoid?
