This is a question about that girl's question...haha

So if my son will be six months on the 12th and I am about 2 months pregnant right now, would it be normal for me to have colostrum? I noticed that my boobs were swollen like when I breastfeed (stopped at 3 months), so I squeezed in the shower and got some white stuff.

Is it more normal for me to have that already since my son is so young?

  • I still have that and haven't breast fed in seven months, and I am not pregnant. My daughter is 17 months old.

  • Most women don't notice colostrum until about 4 months but since your son is so young and since he didn't wean naturally which allows the milk to dry naturally it could have been less "prep work" basically for your breast to produce colostrum.

    I wouldn't be concerned.
