  • With my first my colostrum came at 13-14 weeks and this time since I only stopped breatstfeeding a little less than a year ago I had colostrum before I got morning sickness or a positive pregnancy test but I am guessing that isn't very common lol

  • actual milk doesn't come in until baby is born. you can still have leaking (colostrum) rather early, like 6-7 months.

  • you'll leak colostrum as soon as 5-6months.Your milk usually comes in 3-7 days after the baby is born!

  • what they said lol. It's not breastmilk, it's colostrum and it varies per women. With my daughter it wasn't until after 7 months when I started leaking. With this pregnancy it's been since around 4.5-5 months. :)

  • 5 months with my first. Didn't leak at all with my second. 3.5 months with this one, and nothing so far.
