Shannon was right. I'm totally leaking colostrum! I was a chicken a few nights ago when she told me to go ahead and try squeezing the bbs to see if I was leaking colostrum when I felt all the tingles of letdown. But today I caved and tried it. I didn't have to squeeze very hard and right away a tiny bud of creamy looking colostrum popped out on the very tip. I got so excited...yes, over colostrum I'm just glad to see I have some already so I can feed Elias when he comes next week. Hoping this is a good sign I'll be able to BF without worrying about my milk coming in.
I don't think you need to wait until they tingle with letdown, I didn't. I did it tonight even though I wasn't having any tingles. And it came right out. Go ahead and try squeezing just around the areola area a bit and see. Worked for me.
I haven't gotten the BB tingle you describe, but I've been leaking for a little while tho. Makes me really excited too lol. So excited over the creamy liquid drops lol
I don't think you have to wait for any tingling. So give it a try
