Let Down Reflex

Mother breastfeeding her baby - let down reflex

The let down reflex (or milk ejection reflex) is the ejection of milk from the breast. Women have a pleasant sensation in the breast as milk flows into the milk ducts behind the nipple as the baby starts to suckle. It may also occur at other times when a breastfeeding mother thinks of her child, hears the child cry, or is sexually stimulated.
