DS2 will be 1 week tomorrow. After I had DS1 it took me about 2 weeks after he was born before I really felt a letdown. So far thist ime I have not felt a letdown yet. I'm feeling full but I haven't felt that very full engorgement type feeling. I know my milk has come in, I'm just wondering if it hasn't fully come in? I never leak from the other side. Once I start letting down then I will leak as I did with DS1.
Is it normal to not start getting a letdown till a bit later? I know he's getting milk because I can hear him swallowing/gulping but we're having to supplement with formula after each feeding (or almost every feeding) because of the jaundice and I really don't want to have to do this anymore. I'm wondering if he isn't getting what he should because I'm not having a letdown just yet. He will take anywhere from 1/2 an ounce to a full ounce after feeding and this is after he feeds from both breasts.
