Isn't this way too early to have it?

I didn't get it with either of my babies until after birth,???

Normal? Kind of freaking out a little

It's not worth the tiny but you'd save. You'll have plenty for baby. I have it too, only one side though.

I'm sorry but Meggiesaurus is misinformed. It is DEFINITELY worth saving! Even (literally) one drop is packed with more antibodies and nutrients than we will ever see again in our lives!

How far along are you? Usually if women leak it will begin to around 16+ weeks when lactogenesis begins. You can freeze it and spoon feed it (too thick for a bottle and tummy's are so small at one day old... Think the size of a small marble. Great idea!

If you choose to use a pump it is not recommended to do this at the end of pregnancy. nipple stimulation *may* causd early contractions and send you into labor.

Don't freak!

I've been having that, too. I just weaned my older son a month or so ago, and it seems like instead of drying up all the way, it just switched over to colostrum instead.

With DD, I got it probably around 30 weeks...just a little bit. With this one, I have a little already...I mostly notice it dry (TMI) but I'm sure it's normal
