Re: Question About Lactation
- I have found that being anywhere near the baby will induce the letdown
reflex -- sometimes, even when you don't want it to -- just being near
the baby, perhaps looking at him/her, smelling the sweetness of the
skin, without actually nursing will work. Also, to close your eyes
and visualize that you are actually nursing; the sight, sounds,
smells, etc. can be effective.
Best of Luck.
