The let-down is when the milk sprays out. If you are getting them when you aren't nursing then milk should be shooting out. Many women don't feel anything. You may are feeling something else if no milk is shooting out. Let-down feels good to me. Breast pumps can cause breast trauma and if you are pumping you can have problems from that.

you don't have to pump or nurse every time you have a let-down, but i didn't have many if dd wasn't nursing. are you having a lot of let-downs while baby is not nursing? how old is your baby? let-downs were uncomfortable for me for the first year, and for the past almost year they've been pretty painful.
