  • Be glad when I was 4 months pregnant with my son my boobies started leaking colostrum at night when i would go to sleep and i would wake up with my arms all sticky and crap. So far this pregnancy I am almost 7 months and no boob leakage. So yes colostrum and milk are both sticky when dried

  • What you are leaking is colosutrum which is actual milk. Its just the very first milk the baby gets. ANd yes that is sticky when it dries.

  • With my first pregancy I started getting milk around 7 months...this time after nursing my daughter so long I got it at 2 months, so you're not abnormal by any means. It can be a little sticky...especially colostrum. You will have milk...no worries. And, unfortunately, you'll probably have this leakage til the baby is born....lol...don't get your hopes up about drying up.
