Is it normal for milk to be leaking out at six and seven month, and if so should i start pumping

Yes it is normal. I would not start pumping, just use pads in your bra until baby arrives. The early milk (colestrum) tends to stain so try to keep pads in to protect your bras.

Yeah I had leaking ever since I was 5 months! I was so worried about it! But my doctor told me its very normal!! I use these pad things to put in my bra and they help!! Good Luck!!

It's actually a really good indication that you'll have a healthy supply of milk. My doctor told me that the earlier the colostrum, the more milk the mom tends to have. For me, I was 23 weeks, and exposed to a nursing 6 month old...while I was holding him, he got hungry, and my twin faucets started going...lol...handed him back to his mother and went to change shirts!

I started leaking early early with baby #1 and had FLOODS of milk. Just use some nursing pads if it's heavy enough to need them but don't pump. . . .My supply has dwindled during pregnancy, but I can already tell it's converting to colostrum by DS's stools, and I'm only 17 weeks!! Your body is just doing what it needs to to get ready for your new baby.

I leaked from 16 weeks pregnant on. It's good sign you'll be able to Bf. Good supply

I leaked and I am sorry to tell you, I didn't get a milk supply :( My doctor told me it is never an indication to how much you will or won't have. I tried everything but.... GOOD LUCK
