My milk came on on day 3 after DS2 birth, my boobs were really big and hard and were full of lots of milk. Now on day 7 they seem to have gone soft already 😐 does this meant milk is going already?? I've tried putting him on my boob more and feeding more but it doesn't seem to have helped them. Trust this to happen as soon as I leave the hospital
With DS1 they were hard and full all the time so I'm worried my BF days are already over

I think they have just settled down to a suitable level if supply/demand.
Is your LO having 6-8 wet nappies in a 24 hr period? Seem satisfied after a feed? If so, then I'd not worry.
Your hospital you gave birth in should be happy to help you out at least a week after discharge, so if you are really concerned, give them a bell. Or try the ABA.

I had milk pouring out everywhere when my milk came in and they were tender but never went hard- and I have oceans of milk! I think that's a wee blessing

Its normal for subsequent births/ bubs for milk supply to settle quicker and boobs to be softer
