A little background. My cube is located in what is called 'B4 Annex'. There's a B3 Annex just below. I spend a certain amount of time running between them since a lot of the people I need to exchange paperwork and such with are down on B3. B3 Annex also houses the New Mother's room. (which has a double pump! :O If only I had had access to one of those while working and breastfeeding Thomas...). After pumping, new mothers usually use the bathroom which is right around the corner to clean up their stuff.

I just happened to bump into a woman doing just that on Tuesday and we started up a converstation about it, and breastfeeding and pumping in general. I realized that I could feel that odd sensation of my breasts letting down their milk - only, of course, they had no milk! Weird.


Then, today as I was driving home, I remembered the converstation and started thinking once again of breastfeeding and pumping and all that and darned if I didn't get the odd goosebumps-on-the-inside feeling AGAIN.

The human body is a very odd thing.

It is indeed a marvelous mystery! The human body.

I stopped breastfeeding about 27 years ago. And in the last couple of years, have experienced the same sensations you described when around a nursing mother. Body memory!

It's obviously not hormone related, or none of us would be doing this so far from pregnancy, I should think.

My son is now seven, and I still get that feeling when I hear a hungry baby cry.

Mom and I were talking about it the other day, and she says she still gets it sometimes...and she's 53!

Once a Mom, always a Mom, I guess.

Same here. I still get it.
In the realm of "why do I know this" ....women that adopt children have been able to lactate without giving birth (some use drugs). If you have previously nursed, it's easier to do, and can be done without drugs.

Now that is very interesting. I didn't know it could be done without drugs.
