    justposted on a thread another girlie posted about boobs and it got me thinking do leaky boobs mean anything?

    with 1st son ihad leaky boobs... wet patch kinda leaky boobs. sure that was from before 32weeks which i am now.

    as of up to now all i've had is dried crystals.

    is this is a sign of anything? like not having much milk/problem with milk? potential problem with breast feeding? etc etc

    I think it's def normal. Don't think it means anything?? That I've heard of at least. I've had a few times that I had a drop or two on my nipple. I've had the nasty cheesy dried shit too. And if I pick it off, then I leak again. I've actually broken down and purchased nursing pads.

    Some women leak prior to birth, some leak after birth. It's normal.

    I get the dried crystals frequently (cheesy stuff?!?) but if I have a warm bath/shower, and touch my nipples I leak wet fluid - sometimes white sometimes clear.

    Guess it's our bodies getting geared up for the real thing.

    Cheesy stuff! Lol you said that with a question mark like you didn't know what I was talking about! LOL mine isn't clear crystaly stuff dried on my nipple. It's white and kind of hard and I take my fingernail and scrape it off and that "unplugs" it and I start leaking again. yours doesn't get like that??

    I had the 'cheesy' stuff for a bit and then it turned to the crystals. I get a combo of both now and lots of leaking, mostly at night or after sex. I wear breast pads some days if it's been a bad night and there's evidence of leaking in the morning but they don't seem to collect anything so I think it's definitely a night time thing for me, my sheets are ruined!
