Why am I having a yellow milky discharge from my breaast?

I had a premature baby back on 3-13-09 born at 19 weeks and 3 days passed away but today I started to have yellow milky discharge coming from my breast. What are some reasons this can happen

  • It sounds like colostrum. Which is the stuff you get before you actually start getting milk. Your body was preparing itself to feed the baby. Hot pads and massage will help dry it up. You may have to pump, if you do pump, you can bank it at the hospital.

  • Maybe your hormones are all out of whack? Have you asked your doctor?

  • Oh well, it still sounds like colostrum to me. Or maybe an infection of some sort? IDK, I'm not a dr.
