tear ducts connected to milk ducts?

For some reason I am having an overflowing day today, very full breasts and leaking, etc. And I'm so weepy! I rationally see there's nothing much wrong, but i just feel like crying all day long. Not depressed, really, just tearful.

I've noticed this before, not just the intial milk coming in day, but whenever I have extra milk, like when dd sleeps an extra hour (or 2) at night. More milk = crying?!!

Anyone else?

I know it can work the other way - when bf women have an emotional experience, good or bad, inc even watching a weepy film, they can feel a let down.

It's oxytocin, I expect - the surge you get in order for your breasts to leak also works on your emotions.

Weird, eh
