  • Both. Some women start before. Not all women do and that doesn't mean you will have any problems breastfeeding. With your first baby your milk will come in 3-5 days after the baby is born even if you don't breastfeed. When your placenta is 'born' hormones are sent to the brain telling the brain to make the milk hormones.

    The 'dry up' medicines are too dangerous and women that don't breastfeed should not be given anything. It can take weeks or months for the milk to go away. It can be very painful and some women get breast infections.

  • with my first pregnancy, I didn't leak until after I delivered. With my second...I started leaking 3 months before delivering...and hubby used to drink from me. He loved it. It was weird.
