No. You generally start "lactating" in the fourth to fifth month. Two to three weeks is way too soon.

What is actually produced, however, is not milk but a yellowish substance called "colostrum". Actual production of milk is triggered by the sudden drop of the hormone progesterone when the placenta (afterbirth) comes free.

It is, however, possible to artificially induce lactation before actual childbirth.

How soon should breast milk begin to leak if you are pregnant?

All women are different. I didn't leak until after I started nursing. But I know women that had to wear breast pads during pregnancy. It's hard to say. I'm not sure what the "normal" time frame is every woman is different. And there it is hard to tell what is "normal" when it comes to pregnancy. I am 27 weeks pregnant and i have been leaking here and there for two weeks. To be honest, I am almost 8 months pregnant and I noticed that I began leaking as early as 5 months. Your milk won't come in until a few days after you have the baby, but your body begins producing colostrum at about 4 months. Some women can leak colostrum, or pre-milk, as early as that time, or some may not begin to leak until after they have the baby.

When does milk start coming out your breast when your pregnant?

When you're pregnant, you may leak what's called Colostrum. It looks like breast milk, but it's actually the very first stages of breast milk. Colostrum is thin so the newborn can learn to suck and swallow. Coloustrum is usually leaked in the 3rd trimester (28 weeks-40 weeks gestation) Colostrum is what your baby intially feeds on after they're born. The breast milk itself will gradually come in, and it's nothing to worry about because Colostrum is all nutrients.


Why do your breasts leak?

Some breasts leak every time there is a letdown or milk ejection. Some women don't leak at all. It has to do with the individual anatomy of each breast. Some women leak in the early weeks as their bodies are just beginning to produce lots of milk and then stop leaking. Leaking breasts do not tell you how much milk you are making.

Is leaking breast milk an early sign of pregnancy?

Normally leaking in the breast is not a sign of early pregnancy. Your body doesnt begin to release brest milk until after birth. But there has been rare cases when the mother begins to leak brest milk 2-3 weeks before birth. I would not take this as a sign. But it could mean that you possibly had a miscarrage.

It is most likely colostrom.... yes, it can happan... depending on your pregnancy... my second pregnancy I leaked colostrom from about 20 weeks on.... It is just a sign your body is getting prepared to nourish your baby :) Yes it is possible to experience leaky breasts during this time. It isn't actually breast milk but is called Colostrum. It does look very similar to breast milk though. Your breast milk will come on once you have given birth to your baby. Congratulations.
