    Hey everyone.. Ok Im not going to sugar coat this so...
    I woke up this morning with clear, crusty (what I can only explain as dry pva glue peeling off your skin!! lol) stuff on my nipples. Im currently 19wks + 1, and wondering if this is colostrum. Is it normal to leak so early on?? All help is welcome!xxxx
    Thanks in advance for all your help!x :hugs:

    I've had this but I think it's dry skin rather than colostrum - my nipples seem to have massively increased in size and I think its this change in size that it giving me peely nipples. I just moisturise them a lot or use vaseline if they get sore, which they do sometimes if I actually peel the dry skin off. DH thinks it great that I have to stand there rubbing body lotion all over my chest twice a day!!
