Why do you start lactating when your baby cries?

Attention 🙌 all the baby-mamas here! Have you ever experienced an instant rush of lactation when your little one suddenly starts crying? Your brain & body are constantly trying to help you take care of your baby. Baby crying causes a rise of oxytocin hormones in the body, which causes the let down of breast milk. The same response can happen if you're heavily emotional or haven't fed or pumped in a while. You can even use this to your benefit by inducing on command let down , which can be especially useful for working moms. Now you have another valid reason to carry your breast pads or a change of clothes in public 👇😧
