Is it okay to be making actual milk at 29 weeks? I am still producing colostrum from my left and my right, but in my left out of two of the ducts there isnt any clear fluid but stark white. Is it okay or am I above the curve and going to run on short supply when I try and breastfeed?! Anyone know?
You won't run short on supply hun, in fact it's great that you are producing anything at this stage! Your 'milk' is likely to be colostrum anyway-- immature milk, produced after colostrum is almost blue-tinged, true foremilk white and 'watery' and hindmilk white and thick. Colostrum can be yellow or white, and can vary in consistency and thickness even from the same woman. I know mine did. Your boobs are practicing for when baby is here and will clearly have no shortage of food from you
Any milk that you are producing, if it is BM and not colostrum, will turn back into colostrum anyway shortly before baby is born.
