Now i have you attention...
Bare with me i know it may sound silly but im a little clueless when it comes to this.
I brought my breast pump yesterday.... curiosty kicked in... first i HAD to put it all together....
Then i kinda had to see how it worked... lol
I squeezed the pump maybe 3 times to feel the suction.
But a little yellow/white/creamy liquid started to come out, and i mean a tiny amount cause i saw it freaked out and stopped...
I know your thinking well what did you expect to happen? lol
So my stupid question is..
Does this mean that my milk is there readyish to go and i have a high possibility to be able to breastfeed?
Im asking cause ive heard some people milk dosnt come in till after bub, or that some people just cant breastfeed. so i just wanna see if this has given me the
I apologise in advance lol this is my first bub so obviously never breastfed / had anything much to do with it before

That would be colostrum not actual milk, and unfortunately is no indicated of whether or not you'll be able to breastfeed. Sorry to burst your bubble
In saying that, most women don't get milk come in until they're about 3 days PP so keep that in mind. You'll know the difference when it comes in. It is normal for bubs to lose a little weight in hospital.

Wow...out of 5 pregnancies I have never had a drop of milk/colustrum before they were born - and I have fed all of them for up tp 2 years each
I don't think it has any bearing on your breastfeeding sucess but it has to be a good thing right?? Just remember that the great majority of women CAN breastfeed You'll be right!!

Sounds like colostrum. Lots of fun. I am getting some too.
Mine started leaking out of me like little waterfalls a few days before I started going into labour with the twinnies.
As for milk, mine came in on day three with a vengance!

It's colostrum I think got it with my first about 20 odd weeks 2nd 14 weeks this one only just got it again 20 odd weeks. Both my previous kids I had supply issues with so I don't think it means much at all. I would probably avoid trying to get any out before hand because it can stimulate contractions.
