BFing and DH's (maybe a tmi?)

I didn't BF my daughter because I was not educated at all on BFing. This time around I am planning to be in for the long haul. I hope this isn't TMI but when it comes time for you and DH to be intimate does the breast milk bother him? Im so self conscious and I am already leaking (like crazy) and I'm not due for a couple more months (9 weeks to go)

How do you two deal with the whole breast milk and being intimate deal?

Sorry if this is TMI

I've heard that some women leak during sex, but I never ever did. but they were, other than touching, kinda off limits.

You can wear a bra until your supply sort of regulates itself so you're not dripping everywhere.

I am leaking now so I am so afraid of when the milk comes in that I'm going to be like a faucet lol I am still getting educated on the whole topic of BFing but this was a major question I have been wondering.

I do leak but it doesn't bother hubby any They aren't off limit and he doesn't even mind if he gets some in his mouth...

Just do what you're comfy with and go from there.

I wore a bra the first couple times then just said "Heck with it" and it was kida awkard at first when I leaked but then it was no big deal at all. Dh doesnt mind it a bit.

The dripping or not dripping was secondary (DH didn't care, BTW)... but I was so engorged for a long time, that if the wind hit me wrong, I'd feel a little pain. So poor DH had to just forget about even thinking of touching them for a couple of months.

I was pretty sensitive to begin with so it was hands off for the first couple of months and I only took my bra off to shower. DH can't always follow the rules though and leaking/tasting never bothered him.

I don't leak when we dtd but a lot of the times I still wear a bra during out of sheer laziness to take it off.
