I have breast fed my other 2 children but only for the first 2-3 months. During that time it became so frustrating to me for several reasons.
One reason was because the leaking got to be so horrible. I would wake up in the middle of the night to find myself,my bed clothes and my side of the bed soaked. No fun there. I would wear the nursing pads, I would leak right through! I even put on period pads and changed them often.
Anyway..I'm having another and I really want to nurse longer this time.I', figuring out my battles one at a time before I come to face them again,lol.
So, about how long before it slows down and there is more control or whatever so that I don't leak so much? Or does it ever just stop leaking and only come out when the baby is nursing..that would be ideal, wouldn't it? lol yeah, I wish.

It usually regulates by 8-12 weeks.
Have you tried Lily Pads?
It actually keeps the milk from flowing out all together. You just have to be careful with these and make sure that you are NURSING ON DEMAND because not allowing the milk to come out often enough can put you are risk for developing an infection.
