Breastfeeding is the feeding of an infant or young child with breast milk directly from female human breasts (i.e., via lactation) not from a baby bottle or other container.

How the body responds to baby's suckling: Infant suckling stimulates the nerve endings in the nipple and areola, which signal the pituitary gland in the brain to release two hormones, prolactin and oxytocin.

How Breast Responds to Baby's Suckling: Prolactin causes alveoli to take nutrients (proteins, sugars) from the blood supply and turn them into breast milk. Oxytocin causes the cells around the alveoli to contract and eject milk down the milk ducts.

Let-down is experienced in numerous ways including: The infant begins to actively suck and swallow. Milk may drip from the opposite breast. The mother may feel a tingling or a full sensation (after the first week of nursing) in breasts or uterine cramping. May feel thirsty.
