  • I've heard about these nursing pads that you can salvage the milk from.. I can't remember the name though... sorry!!! I'd definitely pump it!!

  • Is it dripping or just a discharge?

  • thank you for the answers. i only noticed the leaking because my bras felt a little wet, and my sons father had even noticed a wet spot on my shirt one day

  • do you wear nursing pads? I leak all the time but I use nursing pads (I'd be in trouble at work if I didn't). The best ones are probably lansinoh... my son is almost 6 months...
