Moms Share Craziest Leaking Breastmilk Stories

breastfeeding t-shirtWhen Claire Danes shared that she was afraid she was going to leak breastmilk all over her Versace gown during the Golden Globes many of us could totally relate. To thebreastmilk leaking part, not the Versace or Golden Globes part. I remember when it happened to me at a very inopportune time. I was interviewing a candidate for a position and had pushed back my pumping time to fit it in. While talking to her I felt it. Slightly warm, then a little cool, a puddle of sorts accumulating on my nursing pad. A nursing pad I wanted to wring out in order to save every last drop because this is liquid gold and I had twins to feed and every drop was an important drop.

Claire Danes didn't leak for the world to see. And I didn't wring out my breast pads. But I did get some crazy stories from breastfeeding moms who had somebreastmilk leak or squirt out at a really bad time. Check out their funny stories.

It happened to me at work. After my son was born and I went back to work in the deli, every day I'd have a wet shirt under my apron, which didn't cover it up very well. I took to stuffing paper towels into my bra to try and sop it up. My husband used to drive the 20 minutes and bring my son to the store for me to nurse during my breaks, but I still had overflow. -Joye

At my son's BAPTISM! TADA! Right in the middle. I overproduced like CRAY CRAY. I used breast pads and everything. And they leaked RIGHT THROUGH. Thank goodness I had on a sweater set and I could button up my sweater until the baptism was over. -Marj

Oh gosh. I once leaked through all my layers, both sides, right before walking into a crowded business training. Many people made eye contact with me, including the workshop presenter. -Nathalie

Quite soon after Scarlett was born, I treated myself to an early morning pedicure. I got very ... relaxed. Afterwards, I had some extra time, so I thought maybe I'd get a half hour massage at the place right across from the nail salon. When I went in and asked for an appointment, the lady looked at me kind of weird but said okay. It wasn't until after I sat down that I finally felt the wetness. I looked down to two HUGE wet spots getting bigger by the second. Thank goodness I was wearing a coat. I pulled it closed and left without saying a word. -Leah

It was one of my first post-birth outings and we had my husband's cousins' wedding to attend. My sister watched our newborn when my we went and I started leaking the minute I walked out of the house. I had on breast pads but thought it should be fine. Well, I ended up filling those to the point where I had to take them off. I put some paper towels in their place, but leaked right through those. You can see my wet spots in all the photos of me at that wedding. -Jen

My breastmilk squirted all over my husband while we were having sex. -Becky

I was breastfeeding my child and the doorbell rang, so I stopped and went to the door to see who it was. It was UPS. Not only was I leaking, but I forgot to pull my shirt down all the way. He noticed. I pretended I didn't.  -Erin

Wow! Which one do you think is most embarrassing? Have you ever had your breasts leak at a bad time?

I would say the story I quoted would be the most embarassing for me!

I leaked through while grocery shopping with my newborn and 3 year old.  Since my hands were so full, there was nothing to do but finish up and go home to change.  Somehow, being at Trader Joes made it feel a bit better, as if the people there would understand more, since its kind of a "crunchy" store anyway.  We're all going to let me believe this, since it lessened my embarrassment a tiny bit.
