Some come in at 30-something weeks, some come after baby is born. Mine came after both mine were born.

Your actual milk doesn't come in until a day or a few days after birth.  I have heard it can take up to 10.  Mine came in within 3 days.

Maybe that is meant to warn mothers to be that they might start leaking that early on....because first you have the colostrum and then a few days later the actual milk....

ur milk is starting to be produced, but until the baby shows up its only colostrom. ur REAL milk doesnt come in until later, for me it was 3 days (which is average, but it can take up to a week).

Mine didn't come in until almost a week after I had baby.

I had a tiny bit the day after he was born, but it started to really flow 2 days later.

so if your milk takes more then one day to get here, what does your baby eat until your milk comes in?
