    Default Do you get thirsty with let down?

    I know when I'm about to get let down because just prior to it each time I experience an overwhelming thirst for water. It stops me in my tracks, and I immediately have to get a drink of water. DS2 is 9 months and I still get it every time!

    My sister gets it too, but a friend of mine has never experienced it and thought it was really bizarre
    I got it while breastfeeding DS1 as well.

    Every time I BF DD I had to have a bottle of water because I was instantly thirsty when she started feeding.
