hi all. i am 5 months. wondering when everyone noticed their milk starting to come in?? also, is it a bad idea to only br___tfeed for a month or two and then switch to formula?

I got collustrum when I was about 34 weeks or so, at least that's when I noticed it starting to come out. My mild didn't come in fully until 3 or 4 days after I gave birth.

my milk came in 4-5 days after giving birth. Any b___stmilk is better than none. b___stfeed or as long as you can/want too.

Milk comes in 3 or 4 days after birth, before then, you'll have colostrum, which is extremely beneficial for the baby. The longer you b___stfeed the better for the baby (and in certain ways for yourself). You are the one to decide on the length of time you'll want to do it. My ds is almost 7 wks, and I think b___stfeeding is one of the most amazing things about motherhood. I feel very lucky that I'm able to do it, but I know everyone's situation is different. Good luck!

i'm 23 weeks right now and i've had some colostrum leakage every now and again. i woke up in the middle of the night once with it, around a week ago. that was fun (not really). b___stfeeding is best for babies until they can handle more solid foods, but your situation is dependent on how long you can do it. if you need to go back to work after baby's born, try bottling. b___stmilk can be stored in a fridge for 24 hours or frozen for 2-3 days. sometimes balancing with formula is a good way to work it out but formula is expensive and not as good for the baby. do what you can to give your baby b___stmilk - there are a lot of health benefits. hope that helps!
