  • With my son I leaked a lot. Pretty much whenever any pressure was put on my breast. With my daughter, not so much. It could be something you'll have to deal with or it could be a once in a while thing.

  • Depends on how you sit, lay, or even how tight your bra is sometimes. Yep now that you are leaking it will happen more. I wouldn't say you will leak everyday, but from now on out I would wear nursing pads in your bra unless you want your shirt to be stained. If you are wearing a light color sometimes it stains it a faint yellow.... I know I started to leak about 28 weeks and it's not continuous, but it's enough to get frustrated over.

  • When I was prego with my son I leaked a lot...from 13 weeks! I needed to wear nursing pads through most of my pregnancy. With my daughter, I barely leaked at all. Everyone's different, but if you see that you're leaking a lot I suggest you get some nursing pads before you stain all your bras!

  • I have always leaked a lot. Nursing pads are very comfy. What you are describing is totally norma though....good luck.

  • Everyone's a little different. I didn't leak much, but I could easily express milk. There is wide range of "normal" on this one, so don't worry! You might want to invest in some nursing pads (they go in your bra to collect the milk to it doesn't show through your shirt).
