Lecithin supplement and Breastfeeding

I was having painful "letdown" so at my last meeting with her, my midwife suggested I start taking lecitin supplements.

I forgot to ask her "why." Does anyone know why lecithin might help? I don't have any more meetings with her, as my baby's now 11weeks old, so I can't ask without making a special appointment. (I'm taking the supplements and the pain has certainly lessened).

  • breastfeedingTry google search for lecithin and breastfeeding. Sounds like it is helping!! Hang in there!! Also I would try to not wait too long in between feedings/pumping so you are not as "Full" that should help lessen the pain too!! You are doing the BEST thing for your baby!! Congrats on your baby!!
