When did you all start producing milk?

Im almost 32 weeks pregnant (will be officially on friday) and last night as i was drying off from shower, i noticed leakage from my boobs...mainly my right one. i know its totally normal for this to be happening @ this stage in of pregnancy, but i thought it was weird that only 1 boob was leaking lol!? i guess my question is when did you all experience this & did you change to nursing bras ASAP?

  • nursing bras don't really do anything for leaking but you can get breast pads :)

  • I didn't really leak at all before my first baby but once she got here and my milk came in I definitely had a "good boob" that always seemed to leak more and have more milk than the other one.

  • I never used nursing bras thought they were a waist of money but thats just me. I just use sports bras but about only one breast leaking is totally normal mine does that all the time. After my milk came in 3 days after giving birth to my first child I still have milk 3 yrs later! Its just that colostrum stuff I think nothing real heavy but I guess it takes a while for your milk to totally dry up and plus Im pregnant with baby #2 and she will be here in a few weeks so Im starting to notice a little bit more leakage. Your right its totally normal. By the way congrats !! :)

  • I got my milk in 2-3 days after my babies were born. You're not leaking milk, you're leaking colostrum. Do NOT express it, just leave your boobs alone. You were likely leaking because a warm shower can stimulate leakage. No need to switch to nursing bras, but nursing pads may be a good idea to keep around for just in case. I never leaked til my milk came in.
