Why This Happens

It is normal for your breasts to leak fluid as your mammary glands mature and begin to make colostrum. It is also normal for the breasts not to leak. Leaking or not leaking have no impact on your ability to breastfeed.

Some Women Have Tried...

  • Put breast pads inside your bra to absorb the moisture.
  • Wash off dried colostrum with warm water, soap is not necessary.
  • If possible, expose breasts to the sun for a few minutes each day to keep the skin healthy.
