    I don't think you need to boost, sounds perfectly normal, and she is probably feeding to get your supply to suit her. Let down also lessons over time so dont stress. I really ever feel let down anymore. Its just because your feeding is fully established.

    You may even notice your boobs will in fact shrink. Mine are at pre pregnancy size now and i have worn a normal bra for about a year.

    Your doing well, dont stress.
    Good to hear that!!! I sometimes wonder if my bubbas are getting anything anymore (17months) as my boobs are always soft! But they both gulp and gulp when they get the let-down so I assumed there must have been something there!

    I don't feel a let-down ever anymore, and my breasts NEVER feel full - even when I miss a feed for 24 hours (ie when I have to go away for work).

    I have no doubt that DS is still getting enough. The way he drinks (his suck changes as the letdown happens) tells me that.

    Yeah, my boobs are always soft now and I stopped feeling a let down a few months after DD was born.

    I just trust that she is getting enough. I don't notice a change in suck, I don't think I can even tell the difference between comfort sucking and feeding most of the time. But my breasts we're made for doing this so I figure they just are!

    I am having to make a conscious effort to actually offer E solids now, I find boob sooooo much more convenient but I guess at some point she should start eating more...

    My boobs still get hard, and trying to discourage day time feeds, my boobs are dock hard and if I get to the evening without feeding as say have a shower I will explode milk all over my shower

    Jasper is such a power sucker that I think I have massive supply. So missing a feed it's yowey!!!

    Well, we're still going strong, but to be honest I'm a little "over it" at the moment.

    DS has started feeding in the night again (2 - 3 times if he's sneaky), and between DS and DD2 it feels like I'm constantly feeding one or the other and my back is SO SORE! I feed lying down at night due to be too tired to sit up and feed, but I guess I'm not fully relaxing into it because getting up again afterwards is really painful. *sigh*

    DS is a creature of habit with his position now and I get almost permanent toothmarks where he rests his top teeth, and that hurts during the feeds if they go on too long.

    DD is getting annoyed because DS is getting the letdown, and she hops on afterwards and has to work harder to get the next one, so she's getting snotty at me. (I can't always put her on first as it's a case of whoever wakes up first gets the first feed, and unfortunatley he usually wakes first).

    DP will occasinoally give him a bottle of warm milk in the night instead of waking me up, which helps a little, but it seems to be the comfort he's seeking, not the calories.

    I'm still going to let him wean when he's ready, although I'm going to seriously consider knocking these night feeds on the head for him. It's just too much for me at the moment.

    Last night they fed one after the other, then just as I had them both settled, they then both decided that 4am was an opportune time to POO, so I then had to get up and change them both.
