  • colostrom. its kind of like pre milk. its ok if it starts to bother you just put a pad inside your bra. its normal, nothing to be worried about

  • Yep! Perfectly normal. That's kind of what colostrum is but right now I think it's more watery. It's thirst quenching & more clear because your baby isn't just hungry at birth I think they need something more refreshing like vitamin water! lol

  • thats the colostrum! totally normal for this to start happening! colostrum is packed with antibodies and nutrients for the baby once born! if you plan on breastfeeding dont worry about pumping yet, you can wear nursing pads for now if it's getting on your clothes.

  • that is normal don't worry about it unless it really starts leaking then you can get breast pads to keep it from soaking your bra and shirt.
