Maybe a stupid question but?

Hi ladies
this maybe a stupid question but i'll ask anyway i'm five months pregnant with my daughter and last night i noticed fluid on my left nipple which i presume is colostrom correct me if i'm wrong but the question is if i started trying to express now would i start producing milk I don't intend to but i had such trouble trying to feed my son that i had to bottle feed him as he was starving and when i saw this fluid last night i thought how much easier would it be if you could have a good milk supply of milk before bub arrived


the question is weird but if i can't ask the question here where can i right

thanks ladies

Hi. I had the same thing, fluid that would squirt out if I squeezed my nipple around 4 months (which I found highly amusing!) and I wondered the same thing....but no, I did not produce more than the odd droplet, and it was around day 3 after birth before I produced real milk flow.

thanks Mandy J
i realize nothing my milk won't come in yet i think the real question is what makes it happen is it a chemical or hormone or something thats released after you give birth that starts the milk production or is it stimmulation. I met a lady a little while ago who had stopped feeding for 6 weeks and lost her supply she had a milk line put in and encouraged her bub to try and feed from her and she was successful in re establishing her milk supply and was able to go on to feed her daughter instead of using the bottle which brings me to think that its more stimmulation so i don't know.

thanks again

I belong to La Lache League and attend their meetings. One woman came with this same Q while she was still pregnant. The consensus was that it could be yeast infection, not colostrum. Some thing to consider...
