to pump now or wait orlons momma 18 kids; Sewell, 1774 posts4th May
ok so my b**bs leak massive amounts of a clear syrupy liquid mostly in the shower but if i just barely squeeze my nipple it comes right out. i wanna know if anyone has started pumping at 29-30weeks and just stocked up on there supply. i plan on getting right to work as soon as i can after baby gets here. i guess im extra nervous because with ds i gave up bfing so easy and fast and this time i really want things to go better. advice welcome thanks

That's not milk, it's colostrum. Your milk will come 3-4 days after the baby is born.

Its colostrum. Your milk doesn't come in until after baby is born. You are not supposed to pump while pregnant... It can cause contractions and can be very dangerous.

Quoting Big D!:" That's not milk, it's colostrum. Your milk will come 3-4 days after the baby is born."
:!: Not to mention, the nipple stimulation can cause very hard contractions that can cause stress on your body, and the baby. Yay for preemies and NICU time for a tiny bit of colostrum. totes worth it.
