    Boobie milk

    How many days after the birth did your milk come in?
    I've read alot online that it can be anywhere between 2-5days..
    Did yours come in sooner if you had already been leaking colostrum throughout the pregnancy?

    Nope, leaked colostrum from the beginning of the second trimester with 2 of my pregnancies and it still took about 2-3 days for milk to come in. Sooo uncomfortable those first few days!! Ugh. Not looking forward to the first few weeks of breastfeeding at all.

    Leaked for a long time during pregnancy, and it came in after 2 days. With my first, it was really uncomfortable. With the other two, not so bad.






    Mom to a blended family of 5 kids (3 boys, 2 girls), with one more due in late May 2013. We swayed for a girl, but have a sweet baby boy on the way.

    Mine came in after 2 days this time. I didn't leak during pregnancy but only stopped bfing DS3 a couple of months before I got pregnant. 2 days is early!

    The first few days are not fun - I'd go so far as to call it painful - but it doesn't last very long.

    Lol i agree. Nothing prepared me for the first time. My milk came in fast, my bbs ballooned... It was alarming. But after a few days everything smoothed out.

    Mine usually comes in about 2-3 days after delivery. It is always like waking up with two bowling balls on my chest. I get so engorged at first! Oh, and I have never leaked colostrum.

    I don't find it at all uncomfortable or painful either during the early days or when my milk comes in - I'm lucky I know but you may be lucky too
