    Default No milk yet?

    Just wondering when you started producing milk? I am currently 31 weeks and I have nothing yet, no sign of milk or colostrum or anything, is this normal?

    Yes it's completely normal, everyone is different, and then every pregnancy is too
    I didn't get anything till around 36 weeks with most of mine

    Yep normal! I started hand expressing colostrum at 33 weeks as I knew when my DD's were coming and that they would be in SCN so I got a supply of colostrum ready. Your actual milk doesn't come in until a couple of days after birth. Also try not to do too much nipple stimulation as it can be natural way of bringing on labour.

    I started a little later, attempting to bring on labour lol, didn't work, but I impressed my midwives with colostrum that squirted across the room at birth lol

    Don't worry too much about it - I got nothing until bub was born! I was in labour telling the midwives that I have no colostrum or anything yet...would I still be able to breastfeed??
    I had no problems with supply, everything came when it was meant to!

    I got nothing in my first pregnancy until after she was born, with my second I was leaking at 27 weeks.
