issues with milk ejection reflex
by mrs miriam horowitz
My problem is issues with MER. I always feel my reflex very strongly, even now, with my baby already 5 mos old. But sometimes, it just doesn't come. My baby gets very frustrated when that happens and will either cry himself to sleep or get extremely upset and give up.
These episodes occur out of the blue, with no relation to stress, changes, alcohol, smoking, tiredness, etc. It can occur even when my breasts are full when waking up! Baby will finish the available milk but no subsequent MER will occur and he will cry, hungry for more!
Oxytocin nasal spray brings immediate relief, but still...
