  • Not everyone does, I'm 32 weeks with my 3rd child, and I haven't started leaking or anything yet.

  • you don't have to leak or make milk while you're pregnant. some women do.....some don't. i never did and i ebf 3 kids....it has nothing to do with what's going to happen later on. once the baby is born you will start to produce a little bit of colostrum, and a couple of days later your milk will come in.

  • i agree with every post on here. im 24 weeks with my 3rd and i can " squirt milk" and with my first two i didnt get my milk in until a few days after they were born. it all depends on your body and the pregnancy. try not to worry, everything will work out

  • I agree with them I didn't until a little after mine were born. It isn't anything to worry about!!

  • Probably won't until after you give birth. The same hormone that starts labor starts milk production as well.
