Re: Leaking BM at 31 wks??

It's different for everyone and totally normal. It would be colostrum at this point as mature milk doesn't come along until after the release of the placenta. Some women wear pads if the leaking requires it. Often women ask, "Can I pump and save it?" but that's not a good idea as pumping could potentially start contractions.
