  • I got mine after my son was born and I had to pump to make it come, there was never enough so I did formula. But if mine would have come sooner I would have pumped it and froze it for when he was born. It's a great idea so they get the best nutrition when they're born.

  • you do NOT get breast milk untill you have the baby you can leak colostrum which is premilk substance and what you will feed the baby the day you have the baby

  • there is no need to pump before the baby comes. Pumping could cause labor to come. your milk will not come until the baby is born and you will have plenty of colostrum to feed the baby untill it does !

  • What leaks out before the baby is born is colostrum, not milk. Milk doesn't come in until 3-4 days after the birth of your baby. It does no good to pump colostrum, because not only does nipple stimulation cause uterine contractions which could send you into labor, you don't get much colostrum by pumping, usually just a few drops after the first time.
