Odd breastfeeding fear adult content

i breastfeed my my son 2 1/2 years ago for the first 3 months after that he decided he like the bottle from either parent rather than just milk from mommy. when i first got pregnant with him my beast milk came in before he was here i started to leak at about 6 months of pregnancy. he was born 7 weeks early, i dont know if that means anything. but i am 6 months pregnant with our daughter and my milk seems to not have come it yet. could this be a bad sign?

  • That is totally normal . . . our lovely bodies are excellent milk-makers!!! SOmetimes, people continue to leak a year or two after they wean!!!

  • Your hormones are probably different this time around. It's okay! In a lot of women, milk doesn't even get produced until after birth when the oxytocin/prolactin are released.

  • My milk didn't come until 2 days after my son was born.

  • I leaked with my first 2 and nothing with my last 2. I have seen women leak and other women have no problems. Every pregnancy is different, don't worry about it. Maybe that means this baby will not come early. Xfingers crossedX Good luck.

  • My milk did not come in until 2-3 days after with any of my babies. I was able to breastfeed them for 18, 24 and 12 months.
