    I know I'm a week early for joining this group but I figured I needed advice of you ladies who are further along than the 2nd tri. Here it goes: I was just curious to if leaking during pregnancy has any affect on being able to breastfeed? I'm 26 weeks and since about two weeks ago leak about a drop every few days. Did anyone else have this happen? What was the result once Baby got here? I've heard it has no affect and then I had someone who told me that their milk never came in because they had been leaking. So I'm a little nervous about hearing that but I seem to think that normally there isn't an issue even if you leak. Thanks!

    I didn't BF Liam but I leaked through pregnancy and for about 2 weeks after he was born I would leak at night and SOAK the bed, so leaking definately doesn't stop your milk from coming in.

    I leaked a lot when I was pregnant and haven't have any troubles with my milk coming in or breast feeding.

    I leaked from about 20weeks in my last pregnancy and never intended on bfing but Cam was ill so i decided to try. I swear i could have fed the whole neonatl unit! There was loads and loads of milk lol it actually flowed lol this pregnancy i only tested coz i felt my milk being 'let down' and started leaking!!! I must have only been 4 weeks lol i dont think it will stop u being able to feed your baby, it certainly didnt with me lol xxx
