Anyone's Bewbies NOT Working Yet? - Page 2

post #21 of 27
I'm one of those who can express quite a bit out, but nothing seems to be leaking on its own. Both clear fluid and thick yellow colostrum (I'm assuming) comes out.

It is so awesome.

I can express just a little (mostly clear fluid and in one nipple, a tiny drop of what I assume is colostrum will come from one spot), but no leakage. I'm actually pretty thankful they don't leak, but glad to know that there is somethign in there, so I get your feelings. Don't worry, though, it is totally normal to not leak or even be able to express before actually having your little one.

this will be my 3rd nursling and it is the first time I have seen a drop of colostrum during pregnancy it is cool!

Nope, nothing here either. I'm 33 weeks and can't get anything out. It worried a bit at first, but I'm sure our milk will come in just fine when our little ones arrive.

Ok so this morning I broke down and opened my breast pump. I tried it to see if I could get even a LITTLE bit to show up on my nipple. First of all.....OUCH!!! Second, I got NOTHING!! Oh well I am sure they will start doing their job eventually.

You're still early! I got a drop after DS2 tried to nurse. He's officially done, BTW... doesn't really like the taste of colostrum.

I never leak, never get engorged, and succesfully nurse for well over a year. Don't get discouraged. As long as they work when the little one is here, none of this stuff matters.

Mine are working but I think it's because I only weaned my son about 4 months ago.

But yeah, definitely getting that yellow colostrum.
