  • Alright because I have a friend who is 2 weeks ahead of me, she's 28 weeks and she said she got hers. I didn't know it came that early..

  • I got it about 36 hours after DD was born. I didn't expect it to come in until she was almost a week old from what people told me, but I woke up and there it was.

  • With my first baby it took 3 days. With my second it came in the next morning. I delivered around 2 in the afternoon and the next morning I woke up early and took a hot shower and when I got out of the shower my boobs were rock hard and huge and squirting everywhere!

  • My milk didn't come in until the fourth or fifth day after delivery.

  • I have leaked colostrum while fact, since I nursed my youngest practically until I got pregnant again, I didn't "dry up" all the way, but I seriously doubt she has her actual milk in yet. She is probably just leaking fluid.

    For me, usually about 2 days after the babies are born, my milk will come in.

  • I did not nurse my son. With my daughter, it took about three days.

  • It might have taken two days after I had my son but with this pregnancy I have been leaking since I was about 16 weeks. I am 31 weeks now and have been leaking off and on since then. It has actually gotten bad enough to where I need to wear nursing pads and then other days it's nothing.

  • My first was 2 days, my second was 4 and my last was the same day he was born.
