  • Yes. Your body takes a few weeks, even a few months to "regulate". You produce much more than the baby needs at first, and slowly, your body figures out exactly how much the baby needs. I stopped leaking after about 3 months.

  • yeah, that's normal. if you were to stop nursing for a day, they'd be huge a swollen again. your body just knows, after 10 months of nursing, just how much milk to make so that she has enough to eat and you're not carrying around uncomfortable baggage. =) be thankful you don't have to deal w/it anymore! =)
