Do any BFing mom's have really painful letdown? I know with Oli it was uncomfortable and eventually went away but this time it REALLY hurts...I compare it to having a contraction in my boobs because I often have to just breathe through them.

Mine isn't as painful as yours sounds, but Lillian is nearly two months old (5/26) and I'm still getting that intense sensation, which never really happened with the others. She's eating and gaining like crazy, but she's consistent and I figured we'd have regulated by now. Anyway, I do have to stop and catch my breath at times, and then I start leaking. LOL. The joys never end!

yes mine is pretty painful but this is my first time breastfeeding so I don't know what is normal. I just know that my boobs feel like they are gonna explode for a minute or two. It hurts.
