Leaking clear fluid from nipples ?

Postby littlemissblue2000 » Wed Oct 30, 2013 1:01 pm

Hi there,

Sorry if it's tmi, but i'm 26 weeks and keep noticing yellow discharge in my bra - just squeezed nipple and there is some clear fluid coming out - is this normal?!

I don't remember having this with my son, and we had terrible problems breastfeeding when he was born. Hoping it's a good sign!

Thanks

Your colostrum has come in! Perhaps this time your breasts will be ready for feeding and it'll be easier. I got this at 5 months with my daughter and this time it started leaking around 4 months. It's totally normal and nothing to freak out about, it's actually a really good sign that things are working properly! :)

I started at 14 weeks and probably a little before. They say the earlier it comes in is good!

So as not freak anyone out- I didn't have any leaking with my first pregnancy, unless you count the squeezing I did at the end when a friend said something about how much she leaked. DD is 14 months and is still BFing! So if you don't leak, don't let that scare you!

Litmajor- I was the same way before and after pregnancy, I could squeeze my nipples and get something out but never leaked at all and I breastfed my DD1 16 months and DD2 27 months.

Everything I've read says that that is a wonderful sign! Hang in there mama! Id suggest maybe getting some bra pads a little early in case you leak a little more :]

Same for me. I must have had a tiny amount of leaking because I noticed some flaky dirty looking stuff on my nipples and then noticed a drop of clear yellowish liquid after I had picked that off. After that, I only saw it when I squeezed them. I am over 3weeks with bfing now, and milk supply is great. :mrgreen:

Yay for boob juice! I had it about midway through with my first pregnancy, and now actually have little bits of it coming out already this time around! Nothing to leave leak stains but there is some when pressure is applied, which I've been doing because they hurt!
I had a tough go of breast feeding my 1st daughter and am hoping that this time these puppies will be a little more helpful!
