Many women leak colostrum (the first milk) at some time during pregnancy. It can be just a drop or enough that you need breast pads to keep from soaking your clothes. For some women, this starts quite early and for others it doesn't start until just before labor. Some women never experience leaking breasts and this has absolutely no effect on later ability to nurse. If one breast leaks more than the other, that breast may produce a bit more milk, but generally both breasts will produce enough. (Assuming you haven't had surgery and the breasts are not radically different sizes.) Here are more opinions and answers from other FAQ Farmers: * Leaking is normal. I started leaking colostrum when I was 12 weeks pregnant and it started being laced with milk at 30 weeks. I went 40 weeks 5 days. The leaking was so bad then that I'd soak breast pads, but now that he's out and I'm nursing they hardly ever leak anymore, he keeps 'em drained. * It is very normal. I have had 2 children and with both of them I started leaking breast milk around 5 months so there is nothing to worry about. Just stock up on nipple pads, because it sounds like you are going to be a milk factory like I was. * It's normal for me. I leaked a LOT of breast milk during my 8th month with my daughter, enough so that it would spray at times. Now I'm pregnant again, almost 5 years later and the leaking started even earlier, around the 4th month, and now into my 6th month, it sprays. Oh, if I lean on a breast, I soak my clothing, too. It can be inconvenient and embarrassing, but mostly it thrills me to know my baby's growing and on the way. 28 weeks and counting.

Yes, It is very normal for milk to be released at 8 months. It is also common to have them leak at 6 months. To prevent leakage, you might want to buy pads to put in your bra so that the milk does not stain your bra. Also it helps from sticking to your bra. That can be very painful.

Leaking small amounts of colostrum is normal, but leaking blood from you breasts (unless they are cracked, dry and irritated, may not be normal. Ask your OB.

Yes, this is perfectly normal. It just means your body is preparing for the birth and feeding of your child.
