When is it normal to start producing colostrum? RiceMama Bungholio, PP, Lao People's Democratic Republic 8390 posts

Just wondering because my breasts have changed dramatically in the past two weeks, my montgomery's glands are quite noticable and my nipples have been more smooth and shiney.



I'm about 24 weeks, so I thought it was kind of early for them to be getting ready, but is that normal? What week were you in when you first noticed colostrum?

Ehh, ithink it's different for everyone...I haven't had any colostrum leaking and I'm 34 weeks....But like I said, it's different for everyone. I'm pretty sure you're still a litttttttle early to be leaking...but I could be wrong....I started noticing changes though around 23 weeks...I got these wierd little bumps around my nipples, and OB told me it was my "milk producing glands" lol.
