Why are my breasts leaking?

If you suddenly look down and see two dark splotches staining your favorite maternity top (and directly over your nipples), don’t stress it. It’s totally normal to start leaking colostrum, aka liquid gold, before you start producing actual milk.

In fact you’ve been making it since you were about 14 weeks into your pregnancy. Some gals leak a ton, some don’t leak at all, and it makes no difference in terms of how much you’ll produce once your babe is born.

Pro-tip: grab some breast pads and place them inside your bra for maximum leakage care.
