I had a c section 5 days ago and I am wondering if my milk is in yet? I tried expressing this morning and after half an hour I only got about 5 mls so I'm guessing not

how do you know when your milk comes in?

Expressing is not an indication of your milk supply.
Colostrum is quite think yellow and creamy, wheras your milk is markedly milky. What you managed to express, is it thick, or more milky?
most women will have quite engorged breasts when the milk comes in, but not all.
If you had a c/s then it is common for the milk to come in a bit later, so it is definitely possible that yours is still to come.
What did you experience last time you gave birth?

I knew as they were huge, sore and hard like rocks. I equate it to the way a boob job might be. I had a c-sec too and my milk came in 2 days after. Everyone is different though

I knew because I could hear my bub swallowing differently and I had a huge let down which would spray everywhere if he wasn't attached!! Also rock hard breasts like a PP said.
