If you are nursing and become pregnant, how long would it usually take for your milk to turn into colostrum or for you to notice it's different?

It goes back to colostrum right before having the new baby, but I cannot give you an eact time frame. Some people produce the colostrum for months before birth, others not until immediately prior.

I am Andi. I am a 21 year old breastfeeding, baby in sling, cloth diapering momma of two. I am a WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselor, hoping to become an IBCLC. Ask me about my Momma-Made cloth diapers, CD'ing accessories and baby slings!

I havent been nursing for about a month now (I have a 19 month old) . I can tell it is changing. I can still extract milk but instead of it squirting out, It is extremely thick and sticky. It has also started changing to the golden color. Every body produces differently but my body is already changing it :)

Generally, the mature milk of a breastfeeding mother who is pregnant begins changing to colostrum around month four of pregnancy. It will continue the transition between mature milk to early milk in the following months.
