Colostrum Question

DinaAW - March 12

Every now and then, at the end of the day, I will find dried milk in my bra and on my br___ts. At least I think that's what it is. Is it colostrum? I know that some women leak alot during pregnancy and some women don't leak at all but has anyone ever seen it look dry and flaky like this? I imagine leaking colostrum would be some sort of liquid soaking through your clothes or something. Is this dried stuff actually colostrum?

I am dealing with the same thing. Mostly with my left b___st. The nipple is SO itchy and flakey. It looks like dry skin, but it peels right off and the skin underneath is really tender. I haven't seen anything leaking out but there is a lump on my nipple. I am not sure what this is. I'll have to ask my doctor the next time I am there.

I believe that is what it is, I have ssen it leaking our of my b___st and then if I leave it it becomes flaky looking and I can peel it off, just like what you said, and if I play with it too much trying to clean it up, they start leaking again

I started leaking at about 20 weeks, and it's like you said, sometimes my bra will have dried stuff in it from me leaking and it will be dried onto my nipples, and if I'm not wearing a bra sometimes I will get wet spots on my shirt. It is colostrum. It's happened the whole time from 20 weeks on, and I'm in my 37th week now.
