treturous tats (also posted on my bb :-) )

So, you would think after nursing 3 other kids that nothing would surprise me, but here I am, baffled by "the twins" lol So, the last couple of days my breasts have seemed to go on over drive. Kellen's eating habbits havent really changed, they just seem to want to mass produce for some reason. I never got engored in the beggining, but am now...especially my left breast. At first I was afraid that I was getting mastitis because I woke up in engored and in pain, but havent developed any other symptoms. Also, they have started to let down randomly, not just when its feeding time. I have never had this happen to me before. With the other 3 as long as I had a bra on the only way I let down or leaked was when I was nursing. I have tried getting Kellen to nurse more, but all that causes is him to snack rather than really eat... and doesnt help the problem at hand. I have never had to use breast pads before but after leaking through 3 layers today going out the door to go get Dayne from school it may be time to head to wally world.

As a side note, Kellen's poop has changed. Its now a thick mustard consistancy Smile

Well, the poop is most likely a direct relation to the milk. Too much fore-milk can do that....

The sudden change in milk ... I see you are nearing the 2 month mark and that is usually a growth spurt time. But milk production is usually supply and demand influenced... Hmm.. Strange.

Next question. Have you had a PPAF yet?

I havent. With my 1st Im not sure when I got it back since I had the IUD and bleeding issues from that. With DS2 I had maybe 1 cycle before getting pregnant with DD when he was 9 months old. After DD I didnt get it back till she was 13 months old after weening her at 12 months. Kellen is exclusively bf'd, like all 3 of my other babies, and I am not on BC... Oh, and there is no way that Im prego since DH and I are obstaining till his vas... Plus, the first symptom I had with DD's pregnancy was a decrease in milk and DS2 fighting feedings...
