  • It is different for everyone. It isn't milk at any stage before the baby is born... it is colostrum. Your milk will come in within a week of the baby's birth, or as early as 2 or 3 days.
    I have heard as early as 28 weeks. I only had a few spot leaks in the shower around 35 weeks, but have real leakage until my son was born.
