My 14 week old ebf has started to leak milk from the side of her mouth when feeding. She seems to have a good latch and is feeding well other than her being up all night feeding anyway!! Should I be looking at her latch or not worrying?

Hi there, my dd is only 12 weeks so I am no expert but she has been doing this for a while. In her case I don't think it's a latch issue, it's more that she gets distracted and lets milk escape when fidgeting. I also have a strong let down and think she does it to cope with that sometimes.

Yeah she is very fidgety in day when feeding - too nosy for her own good! X
