Are your breasts leaking yet? I remember having milk much earlier in my other pregnancies... I'm almost 30 weeks. YDD is almost 3 and still nurses but so did ODD during my entire pregnancy. I find I can squeeze out a drop or two very, very rarely but she mostly tells me it's a dry well.
It's ok to not be leaking yet, right?

My advice may not be appropriate for you. That's ok. You are just fine how you are and I am the right kind of me.

I dont get any colostrum at all until birth, and even then it takes DAYS (up to 5!!) for my milk to come in...It is SO annoying. I wish they would stop being in denial
I have had to supplement (with a dropper while latching on) with goats milk for at least 2 of my babies for a few days after birth.
However, I must say after my milk finally does come in, it is always clear sailing from there. Thank God!!
I've never had a breastfeeding issue, other than suffering from oversupply and overactive letdown. I typically leak like crazy for about 4 months after birth. My milk comes in late the second day.
So, I think either way is totally normal for a mama, and is no indication of supply issues after birth.
Blessings! How neat to see the preparation for baby's milk!
