I had my son on the 26th of april. Colostrum has come in, but no breastmilk. Is it unusual for it to take more than a week for my breastmilk to come in. I also have a few lumps in my left breast over the top of my areola. Im very concerned to what it might be. Please helpAnswer Question

Milk should come in within 2-5 days. How do you know it hasn't come in? If it hasn't come in and your baby has gone 2 weeks without food, colostrum would be minimal if milk hasn't come in, your baby should be loosing weight, not having stools, and dehydrated. You need to contact a lactation consultant right away.
If you think your milk hasn't come in because you can't pump, that is not how you tell. A woman can have abundant milk for her baby and not be able to pump a drop.
