Breasts feel deflated?

I'm currently 15 days past the delivery of my daughter, she's EBF and she's been great with latching on, my nipples are no longer sore, cracking or engorged, but they feel super deflated, like the milk is gone, she's still latching on and swallowing when she eats so I assume I'm still producing milk, and she still dribbles some milk out, so I know she's getting SOME, but should I be concerned with a decrease in supply??

If she wasn't getting enough she'd let you know. She'd want to nurse more frequently or get fussy when you were done nursing. If your body has figured out how much it needs to produce and how often, which it probably has, you won't get the super full feeling unless you go longer between feedings.

I don't pump, only once in a while, she has plenty of wet and dirty diapers so I think she's getting enough, I'm just shocked how less full they feel! She's gaining weight great, too. So hopefully it's just my body adjusting!

I feel the same way I thought I was starting to dry up glad its not just me :) my baby always acts full and is content but with my first I don't remember my breasts feeling this way I guess it's my body adjusting good :)
