Emptying a breast

i know they say you should let the baby nurse until he/she empties a breast before moving on to the next one, but how do you know if your breast is empty??

Re: Emptying a breast

  • it took me a little while to figure out when it was empty....In the beginning, you just nurse on demand, so I felt like I was nursing ALL DAY.  BUT, once she finally got  on a nursing schedule and we settled into that (3-4 weeks) i could feel that my breast would be "floppy" for lack of a better term, when she emptied it.

    Now, I can still tell by the "floppiness", but I can also tell because she is just sucking and now swallowing and she pulls off when she isnt getting anymore or she is done...
