I'VE SPRUNG A LEAK!

an oddly leaky boob
Since Anna was about 2 weeks old, I seem to have a leak in my left breast. It only happens when it is really full but it does happen consistently when she sucks hard. It never happens on the right hand side, and it never happened in the more than 6 years I spent breastfeeding my other 3 kids. It really is quite strange. It hurt at first so I thought it might become infected but now it just slowly and painlessly drips milk as she feeds early every day. Funny, I wonder if it will dry up at some point!?

I notice the leak spot of milk is directly in little Anna's eye line ,..
So obviously this is just her way of keeping an eye on the level of available food ?
