How soon after birth did yours come in? I probably should know this since i've bf 3 kids already but I really don't remember lol. I'm finishing up my hospital bag and i'm not sure if I should bring breast pads. Will I really need them that soon? Have any of u needed them while still in the hospital?

The day after my first was born, and a couple hours within my second being born. I did bring breast pads but I don't remember if I used them or not.

With my first one it took about three days. Maybe just bring them just in case.

I'm 36 weeks and leaking colostrum, so I'm already wearing mine. At our BF class they said if you nurse in the first hour after delivery and then exclusively BF then your milk should come in the next day! Otherwise it can take two to three days for milk. You already have colostrum in your breasts if you are late third trimester. You could start a leak anytime.

Pack them.

My milk came in three days after my son was born. My colustrom was in about 5 months of preg though.
Right now I'm pregs with 2nd and my colustrom has been in since I was about 20 weeks.
Milk usually desn't come in for anywhere around 48-92 hours after birth.

mine was gradually. but it was like... three full days or so.. :) and if you're bfing, i don't think you'll need breast pads. you tend to feed a lot, so breasts don't have too much time to get engored. lol! but i would take a couple as a JUST IN CASE type deal. don't wear and waste em until you actually NEED them. :)

oh, and i didn't get to nurse him until he was a few days old. he was in the nicu. so i was pumping. that could have affected my supply in the beginning. now he's bfing and eating solids! :) he was ebf from two weeks old (when he came home) to about four months.
