Re: Colostrum shocker (come get a laugh if you need one)
My friend who can soak (think dripping) an infant prefold overnight discovered the wool and loves it. She just cuts an extra piece of wool out of a sweater she is making into longies and lanolizes just like her other wool.

ETA yes if you push on the non-nursing side it will stop the letdown..and i never smelled like sour milk..eww
I have never smelled like sour milk except when my boys spit up on me and I couldn't change soon enough. Always have a few shirts picked out if you have a spitter, and throw some neutral ones in the car. And if you do have a spitter either get used to ponytales or shorter hair, washing spit up out of your hair is a pain and is sure to leave you smelling if you don't get it all. Leaking has never smelled just spit up.
