Random Let-Down

Has anyone else experienced this?: My 8 month old is on a feeding schedule, so my let down occurs during those times even if I'm away from him and have to pump later than the feeding time. The past two days I have had two random let downs at times that are not his normal feeding time. This has never happened to me before, so I wanted to see if I wasn't alone. I should mention that I started my period yesterday, too, and those have been all over the place so far.

    This is totally normal. I’ve been breastfeeding for over 2 years now, and I had random let downs for the first year.

    Maranda, thank you! It's never happened before, so I wasn't sure if something was wrong or maybe it was hormones from my period.
