Another one of my first time mom questions?? :-)

Okay, I have been reading that I should be producing colostrum and even leaking some.  I haven't had this issue at all.  I am a little concerned because I plan on breastfeeding for the first year.  Should I be concerned if I am not leaking yet?

I don't know...  I didn't leak, but I also didn't produce milk.  I made the colostrum though.

I didn't leak colostrum with my son so with the pregnancy when I started leaking I freaked out a little bit!  I didn't know you got it till the baby came.  I think your fine if you haven't leaked, but you still may since you have 9 weeks or so left.

Heck no!!! I never leaked anything until after baby was born. But I am quite certain its in there you just aren't aware of it yet. Oh and after my son I had enough milk to feed the entire hospital!!

Really, everyone is different.

I leaked with my daughters and didnt even make enough milk after.. only breastfed for a month each.

with this pregnancy, a boy, i'm not leaking.. we'll see what the outcome is in the end! i'm really wanting to breastfeed so I hope for the best
