Expressing colostrum Chelsea Lane Due May 24 (boy); Acworth, Georgia 15 posts

I will be 39 weeks on Tuesday and I have trouble expressing colostrum. I can get a tiny bit out but never any drips. Does this mean that I will have trouble breast feeding?

Nope not at all. You'll make more colostrum when you have the baby as it is. They are not going to be full enough to really express it. I w ish mine were like that... I have soaked the bed wirh it so many times already its not even funny.

Definitely not related. Some people get a bunch while pregnant and have trouble nursing, and some people get none while pregnant and have enough supply to feed an army lol.
