I'm 36 weeks pregnant and today I had white leaking from my breasts instead of the clear colustrum that I've been seeing for months. I always though colostrum was clear or yellow? I had trouble bf my first because of low milk supply ( it took about a week to come in ). Is the white stuff still colostrum or beginning of milk? Does this mean labor is near?? I'm supposed to be having a scheduled c-section.
It's still colostrum. Your milk doesn't come in until days after the baby is born.
My colostrum varied.. Clear-white-yellow and one time almost orangish... I'm retry sure it's not milk... Milk hormones to kick in till after the placenta comes out.
I would have periods where my colostrum would be white, clear, yellow/white.
It's not a indication when labor will start.
Milk doesn't produce until the placenta is detached from your uterus.
Ty all! Hopefully this is a good sign that I will be able to successfully bf this time around. :)
