Because I dont. It's weird to me that i dont. She is gaining weight so I'm assuming she is getting enough to eat?

I leak thru out the day and last week I actually woke up to the let down sensation and all the sudden there was milk everywhere.  I guess I must have been super relaxed or something.

I did - I haven't for a LONG time.  I had an oversupply and overactive letdown, so when I leaked, it was bad  :)  I was pretty thrilled to be able to forget the nursing pads. 

And yes - if she is having enough wet diapers in a 24 hour period, she is getting enough milk  :)

I leak very rarely. I'm not sure why I do on those few occasions (like this weekend while grocery shopping - nice!), but I know she's getting everything she needs, so I"m not worried. There's such a huge variation of "normal", as long as your LO is having enough diapers and meeting milestones you don't need to worry. Everyone is different.

I always leaked although it is normal for you not to because it's possible your supply has evened out.

I've never leaked with my second baby. She was exclusively breastfed for 7.5 months, and is still nursing at 16 months. No worries. :)

Nope never have. Worries me sometimes! LOL. Actually thats not true....I will occasionally if I become engorged at night. But thats only like 3 times a month. And its not much at all.

I am apparently according to dumb insensitive drs not producing enough but I saturate nursing pads and pump three oz ontop of that lol so as long as she is doin diapers and hitting milestones she is okay :)
