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.
