Not Leaking....

So everyone told me my breast would swell and be engorged and hard and leak. Well my daughter is 2 weeks old and my breast got hard for like 2-3 days and I leaked then now.. I have a small amount of leakage but thats it. I am formula feeding so I knew I would not stay swollen to long, but I thought it would be longer than 2 days.

This is normal right for women who do not breast feed??

  • Oh, and you may end up leaking at some point, which also would be normal.

  • if you never breast fed its not going to last as long as it would have if you did. I breastfed for two weeks or so before i came to the conclusion that it was just not for us at the time because of some issues that arose and it took mine about a week to go down
