A storm of food - when does it occur?
Lots of food it physiological breast overfill 2-4 days after delivery (30-40 hours after the birth of the child). It also happens that the onset of the onset occurs later: 5 or even 6 days after delivery.
Breast overflow is associated with the release of hormones responsible for starting lactogenesis II, or the maturation of lactocytes, producing milk from now on which has more and more components of mature milk.
Increased breastfeed is also associated with greater blood and lymph flow to the gland, which results in its tension and overflow. This phenomenon is physiological, i.e. completely natural.
When does the collapse end?
The most difficult moments are first 2-3 days of onset. Stabilization of lactation occurs after about 2 weeks, sometimes the symptoms of milk flow can appear for several weeks.

A small amount of food can be dropped from the breast in two situations: if the breast is tense so that the newborn has difficulty grasping it, then we express some milk to reduce the tension of the nipple or between feeding when the child does not want to suck.
In the second case, it's worth remembering to feed draw only to a feeling of reliefand not until the breast is completely empty! Completely expressing the food may cause excessive production.
Let's remember that the period of milk crisis is stabilization period during lactation. It is the mother's body that learns how much milk it must produce from a child. By drawing large amounts of food, we provide our body with incorrect information about the need to produce even more of it.
