  • Its just a hormone discharge - my daughter is 13 every once in a great while I will have to use a warm cloth to wipe or it gets really sore

  • it's normal and the earliest milk you produce. It can be produced (it's called colustrom) this early in pregnancy!

  • It is normal. You should not pick it off or wash it off. It is just your nipples way of getting ready for the baby. The lactation consultant that taught our breastfeeding class told us exactly what it was, but I can't remember. I just know she said not to wash your nipples in the shower, just let the shampoo from your hair run down them. Kind of weird, but for some reason I remember that.
