Will my milk come in like its supposed to? (Lots of conditions)

I had a baby 9 months ago. I stopped pumping about 5 months ago due to alot of different things. When i attempt to manually express breast milk, something clear (colostrum probably?) slowly comes out. Will my milk come in like its supposed to after the birth of my next baby (i am 5 months pregnant)?

If i start pumping milk now for my first child, will it still come in like it is supposed to after the birth of my next baby?

  • yes, even if you never stopped nursing your oldest one you would still turn it into colostrum for the new baby.

  • Nothing you've listed is any reason for it NOT to. You haven't had duct-severing breast surgery, have you?
