Lop­sided leak

Pregnancy Life & Style - - GOOD ADVICE -

QI’VE BEEN LEAK­ING BREASTMILK FROM ONE SIDE BUT I HAVEN’T GIVEN BIRTH YET. IS THIS NOR­MAL?

ALac­ta­tion con­sul­tant Barb Glare says: It is nor­mal to leak colostrum (the first milk) from about 26 weeks. Even a very small quan­tity can leave a size­able mark on your clothes. It doesn’t mat­ter that you are leak­ing only from one side. Dur­ing preg­nancy, some women leak a lot; oth­ers don’t leak at all, but this has no bear­ing on their abil­ity to pro­duce breastmilk.
