    I never leaked and I had and still have plenty to feed my son. Consider yourself lucky. I just say I have very well behaved boobs. :)

    AFAIK it's perfectly normal to leak, or not. Mine leaked, literally one or two drops, once, when I was 8 months pregnant. Since then, not a DROP.

    mine occasionally do overnight if Thomas goes a bit longer than normal without a feed, but other than that, mine havent. Ive never worn breast pads - oh except when i was using nipple cream and it was staining my white bra! lol

    I leak if my LO doesn't feed when expected, in the AM, and after a warm shower. I have no idea if this is normal or not???

    Mine only leaked when my milk came in fully and when I was pumping more often....and when I did skin to skin.....omg...it was so bad I would have to walk to the bathroom in my hospital gown with HUGE wet spots. I would cover my breasts as best I could..but everyone could see. I wanted to die! LOL But with skin to skin in the NICU you usually dont wear a bra! What could I do?! LOL

    I've always leaked but I have a few friends that were gobsmacked that I still need breastpads as one of them never needed them and the other only needed them for the 1st week:wacko:....I wish. Would save me a fortune if I didn't leak:thumbup:
