  • Leaking from one breast can be normal. DON'T do the castor oil you WILL regret it lol.

  • Once your milk comes in completely, it'll come from both. Don't do castor oil, just be patient your little one will be here soon enough....

  • Castor oil can give you some pretty bad diarrhea and cramping. I'd avoid it TBH. Last thing you want is to be pooping all over the delivery table.

    Have sex, walk, stairs, nipple stimulation, red raspberry leaf tea (all natural), etc. But castor oil? I wouldn't touch that stuff with a 10 foot pole.

  • Breast milk leakage is to be normal and even after you have the baby you will have this so dont mess with castor oil
