Thatd how it feels for me at times too, sometimes nothing and sometimes pulling/tugging.


Quoting theresa13183:

i seem to have overactive letdown and to me it feels like a pressure/squeezing inside my breast...kind of feels like how i imagine a balloon would feel if it got too much air....and i only know that that is my letdown because either during or after the boob i am nit nursing in will leak

Painful cramping radiating inward. It would only last several seconds.

Quoting keikoness:

when daddy feeds her she will eat 4-5 oz per feeding and eats every few hours.
Daddy's overfeeding. Bottles of three ounces, fed with slowest nipple forever, bottle held parallel to the floor and baby is burped every every ounce. And these are all forever numbers.
Not only for mommy day but I want to have an emergency stash in case something happens like getting super sick or emergency surgery. Better safe than sorry. I really don't want her to ever have formula.
Teach dad not to overfeed and you'll never have to worry about formula. Right now he's overfeeding and THAT is your greatest risk for using formula.

How do I bring it up with daddy because this isn't his first child but its my first.

When I say something like "make sure the carseat clips in cause sometimes it doesn't veryeasily" he will say" you gotta remember this isn't my first rodeo"

EVERY time a new baby is born, it's the parent's first rodeo. I don't care if he fathered 40 children before. This is a NEW baby and things happen differently every single time. 

Tell him do it your way or it'll be his LAST rodeo. I'll loan you the rusty knife to ensure it.

(I have no patience for Y Chromosome Defect. Sorry.)

She is completely different from his son. For one, his son never cried/cries. Emily-Ann cries alot. Too hot, too cold, hungry, overeating, gas, poop, pee, wanting to be held, losing the pacifier, blankets not comfy enough, wants someone else to hold her, the list goes on. Sometimes there are tears, sometimes she just screams.

Heh heh.. Sounds like a DADDY problem! **grin** He'll figure his way out, but the way out should not include stuffing her insensate. Soon enough she'll be very happy with him. (You might check his after shave, though! Sometimes the littlest things cause problems!)

definitely not aftershave. He doesn't wear any. I have no idea what it could be.

Was his other kid breastfed or bottle fed? Give him the kellymom article about bottle feeding the breastfed baby.
