* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)

Hi there not been on for a while life been really busy.

Just need some help/advice/suggestion etc.

My little fella is now 19mth old and is still breast feeding, but my flow had levelled out to his demands.

Cos he feeding less now than he has before.

However over the last couple of days i have started leaking again, and its actually pouring out when he lets go and it poors out of one while he feeding from the other. Dont understand it any ideas anyone.

I am on implant for contraception if that has any effect not sure but shouldnt be that i had it over 12mths now.

Please anyone with any ideas let me know.

Hmmm does seem strange. I doubt its to do with the implant as you say you have had it in for 12 months.

My supply is up and down with hormones (still haven't had first af) and some days I leak loads even when her feeding pattern hasn't changed.

hmmm! could it be that your baby is starting to take less milk at each feed and your body is still adjusting, resulting in leeking?
not sure about the implant. I thought the hormones in the implant didn't interfere with bf'ing.
hope it settles down for you.
