  • I was producing a little bit of colostrum at around 36-37 weeks, but as far as it pouring out to where I needed a breast pad, that didn't happen until a day after they were born.

  • I have been "leaking" since about 30 weeks but, you can't really tell. My milk came in when the baby was about 2 days old. And it came in like a flood.

  • It happens at all different times for different women, and sometimes not until after the baby is born. i wouldn't worry too much!

  • This is my second pregnancy and I leak a very small amount already and have been since about 21 weeks.
