At first, you may ex­pe­ri­ence leak­ing. But lac­ta­tion con­sul­tant and M&B ex­pert Barb Glare says your body soon regis­ters that it’s feed­ing only one small baby – not an en­tire sub­urb. “Most of the time moth­ers find their milk sup­ply set­tles down af­ter a few weeks and they no longer ex­pe­ri­ence leak­ing un­less they be­come re­ally full,” she says. Leak­ing is more likely to hap­pen if bub misses a feed – and also dur­ing sex. The body re­leases oxy­tocin dur­ing both ac­tiv­i­ties and can get con­fused.
