    I'm wondering if this is colostrum. I read somewhere that colostrum is a yellowish liquid. Can it be a clear liquid as well.

    Thanks for the replies. I was confused since the liquid is clear. I guess it will change as the weeks progress.

    Some get it, some don't. Doesn't mean that there's something wrong or you won't be able to BF :thumbup: I've been getting it.

    Mine has been clear... but, and this is embarrassing to admit, I wanted to be sure my breast pump worked last weekend and the clear liquid quickly turned into to orangish/yellowish colostrum. So apparently it starts out clear at each nursing session and then changes after baby has been feeding for a minute or so (because I seriously wasn't testing my breast pump for very long! :haha:)

    Just a word to the wise: Don't use your breast pump again before baby comes! It can start contractions :flower:

    I'm well aware. But I had to be sure it was working properly before I actually needed it to be. Of course I have no reason to use it again until baby is here. :haha:
