View Full Version : I had my first boob leak!!!
:smiliedance:I know this may seem silly, but for me, it was a big moment...DD is 14 months now, and I have never suffered leaky boobs I have been told it is because of my "large reservoirs" (I'm a 16 I).
The other day I had had a shower, and not fed DD for a couple of hours, and I was in the kitchen making a cup of tea (having a naked moment), and I thought.."Oh my goodness, I have peed myself", but no, it was a river of boob milk running free.
I know it is such a small thing, but now I feel accomplished. I always worried I was never making enough milk, that I wasn't like "other women".
Is there something that you feel you are missing in your bfing journey that would make it complete?
I have definately had the leaky boobs from the start, but just recently they have stopped leaking as much and I don't have to wear breat pads anymore:D.
What I am missing from my bfing journey is feeling the letdown happen. I've never felt anything. I guess it is better than it being painful though...
hehe this made me giggle and really look forward to bf again :D
I could not be without bra and pads on or i would be leaking everywhere! As soon as i was out of shower i would have to put bra back on but i was never quick enough haha
I think the thing i have missed would be not feeding past 3 months and really looking forward to it this time around!
Bubmum- your boobs are perfect for your babe :) I think it's exciting having the leaks...too many can get annoying, but they are reassuring, aren't they?
I gotta say I'm pretty happy with my bf journey. Always has massive leaks for the first 3 months or so! Funny, a lot of the time they'd happen when I was in the supermarket and I'd have one massive wet patch and one smaller one. Good look that. Almost 2 years later...no more leaks, don't get the feeling of fullness much, but she seems to still feed a lot.
:smiliedance: i think it looks so cool.. yay
my son is 20 months old and im leaking all over the joint...
my first public one was embarrassing though, i was on a night out at the pub, looked down and there was a big wet patch:laughing:.. most people thought i just spilled my drink though;)..classy
I almost never leak, but one time was as I was getting "romantic".... talk about a show stopper! We both started laughing so hard and were still having the odd giggle hours later.
I'm glad you enjoyed your leak!:D
I hadn't had one for over 6 months, but I had a blocked duct yesterday, and my son managed to clear it from a very long feed, but when I stood up, milk just uncontrollably squirted out. I stood their feeling ridiculous but then ran back to the baby and convinced him to take some more.:D
I don't know what I've missed out on. Probably as another poster said, the let down feeling. I don't know if I've experienced that.
