breast milk ?

ok, so I'm nearly 31 weeks and I have no breast milk yet, not even a hint of a leak..is this normal? when should i expect milk to come?
I'd like to BF for the first 2 months or so..but now I'm worried I won't be able to as there's no sign of any milk coming in.

  • My milk didn't come in until after my babies were born, I had 3 and 2 of them were breastfed. Don't worry about it yet.

  • Your milk usually comes in 3-5 days after the baby is born. Colostrum is first to come in & it's exactly what your baby needs. Lots of nursing & no supplementing will help establish & regulate your supply once your little one is here.

  • I'm on my 3rd & had no leaking prior to delivery w/ all 3. My milk came in on day 3 after delivery for both.
