Does it mean anything if your breasts leak? Like early labor or anything bad?
I just noticed my boobies are producing a very tiny amount of milk when squeezed. I didn't leak at all with Clyde until after he was born so this is new to me.

I had this too when I was expecting my son. It's not milk I don't think. It's Colostrum. It's not bad and not uncommon.

30 Weeks Pregnant: Your Pregnancy Week by Week

If you have a breast pump, you can start pumping soon, maybe as early as 6 weeks before your baby is born. Once you start getting 2oz or more, you can freeze the milk. You'll have a nice stock in place for your baby when he arrives and DH can help feed him too, just place the bottle in warm water to thaw and DH can feed while you sleep! It'll also be nice to be able to BF right away. Most woman have to wait until their milk comes in - sometimes 4 or 5 days and that can be frustrating.

I think it's pretty common. Maybe more so if you've had kids before. I know I leaked before birth with both my kids. Not a lot, but I did notice.

I also want to say that the title of this post is so Beavis and Butthead, that I haven't stopped laughing.

I can already hand express colostrum. It is very normal.

Definitely normal. it's a good thing. You should have plenty of colostrum for Toren when he is born until your milk comes in.

Normal. especially bc you've had another baby. I would NOT recommend pumping. Nipple stimulation can provoke contractions.

Out of curiosity I gave the girls another squeeze this evening and nothing came out. I really don't care if they leak or not at this point. I just hope when it comes time for Toren to eat I don't have any issues with my supply. I'm very determined to breast feed and fear I will be heartbroken if circumstances force us to stop earlier than I'm wanting to.

Edited:
Just took a shower and one leaked while the other one did not. I guess it's a random thing at this point.

I did not know this, but read a few articles and it's true. Wow! Sorry Ame, I didn't mean to give you bad info!

I didn't have any leakage but still had plenty of milk for my boys. So if you are already making milk, you know your body is going to nourish your baby just fine.
Some women have their real milk come in sooner or later than others, I've heard up to a week after birth, but when babies are first born, their stomach is itty bitty. All it can hold at first is about a tablespoon. So that colostrum is perfect because it is small amounts that comes out slowly for their teeny tummies.

I wouldn't worry if they do stop leaking you should have plenty of milk for Toren. I was just like you when I was pregnant with Jackson I was determined to breastfeed and nothing was going to interfere. it was hard at first but you guys will get in a rhythm and it does get easier. There are lots of breastfeeding momma's on this board so we will be here for you when the time comes. I breastfed Jackson for 13 months and Jacob for 15 months. it was definitely easier with Jacob but it wasn't that bad with Jackson and it does create such a bond between you and your little boy. I was sad to stop breastfeeding Jacob but felt that I needed to for my current pregnancy and he did fine. I think he was ready to wean anyway.
