  • I didn't until after my Son was born. About 3 days after. I bottle fed. I'm Pregnant again and 35 weeks and have not started either. But I hear it's common. I wonder what causes it?

  • for me it was different with each baby. I saw nothing until my son was born (he was my first). My 2nd baby, I started leaking at 36 weeks. and this time, 24 weeks!!!!! It was weird, I asked the doctor he said it's totally normal. But, everyone and every pregnancy is different.

  • It's completely normal! I didn't start lactating until after my son was born, but with this pregnancy I have had some leaking and I'm only 25 weeks along. I breastfed with my son and produced more than enough milk. I had to go out and buy a pump because my boobs would get so full in between feedings it was painful.
