  • yes, you can try nursing pads, wearing a looser fitting bra, etc I remember waking up one night being soaked, lol

  • YES!!! Don't freak out! It may get worse when you hear babies cry. BF moms will have more info :-)

  • It is colostrum and it is normal for some women to start during pregnancy. Get some breast pads.

  • pretty sure its normal to lactate throughout the latter part of the pregnancy.....just one of the joys we get to endure lol! when i was 32 weeks with my daughter i ran down the stairs to answer the door for the cable guy....he was looking at me so strange! I looked down and my shirt was soaked!!! obviously breast milk! I don't know who was more embarrased me or the cable guy!!! Point is, i'm pretty sure its totally normal to do this throughout.....

  • its defintely normal and as much as breastfeeding was something i wanted to do, it was crazy, waking up with a wet shirt! ugh...but its worth it! I liked the disposable nursing pads, obivously because they are easy to change and can be thrown out, but i did really like the cotton ones because they were soft, not like the disposable ones, and cushiony, which helped with soreness, and since i did my sons laundry like everyday when he was newborn i threw them in the wash with them.
