So I’m 4 weeks PP and getting closer to the six week mark where DH and I get the green light. I didn’t expect to breastfeed so I hadn’t given it much thought but now that I’m breast feeding I’m wondering what’s going to happen. DH is a chest guy. His favorite part of the female body. But every time he touches my chest leakage happens. Its like it tricks my brain and I get the sudden let down. It happens so easily too.
So what do I do? What can you do? Are they going to have to be off limits until I stop breastfeeding?

Mrslovebug: I want to preface this by saying that I don’t have any children. However I did ask this question to a friend of mine who does have kids because I was curious, and she told me that yes there was some leakage but tha it wasn’t too much and it didn’t stop her husband from playing with her breasts while breastfeeding. She also mentioned that sometimes her breasts were too sore to be fondled.
I don’t know that there’s anything you can do about the let down and in the end you and your husband should agree regarding what you’re comfortable with.

BFing hasn’t stopped DH from touching my boobs. Sure, there’s a little leakage sometimes, but it’s not a big deal. I will say that there is less boob touching though.

Heck no my breasts aren’t off limits. DH loves it and I love it. There’s no way to prevent leakage because the same hormone is responsible for let-down and sexual arousal. My husband likes it when I leak because that means I’m really aroused! If it bothers you, just make sure you have a towel on hand. It doesn’t bother me at all and I don’t see why it would be a problem.

Mrslovebug: Some guys get off on tasting the milk during sex, you should ask if that’s something he would be into.
