  • The yellow fluid appears to be colustrum. I think you should leave that for your baby which is what he/she really needs.

  • its colostrum, the first thing your baby will have to drink!

  • Colostrum. You will make that untill baby is born and a few days old.

  • Perfectly normal, that's your colostrum. Don't be surprised to find it leaking on and off over the rest of the pregnancy. If it's a problem, get some breast pads.

  • Sounds like colostrum, which is the first milk the body produces before your milk comes in, however many women leak colostrum in their 3rd trimester.

  • what everyone else said!!! Mine was leaking the whole 3rd trimester. Dont worry. Your body makes more so it will be there when the baby needs it.
