night leak and raspberry leaf tea
hello ladies,
this is my second pregnancy and things are a little different this time and i'd love to hear your thoughts.
i have had a breast reduction and with my first i wouldn't stay firm enough to latch so we used formula and i dried up. i had a touch of colostrum about a week before delivery.
i am currently 27 weeks and the last few nights when i wake up to go pee i have noticed a bit of leaking. its funny to me that its actually white though, i expected yellow for colostrum. anyway, its only from one breast and only at night and only a enough for me to feel that it is wet. also, i have noticed i am much warmer the last week too. are my hormones working on getting my body ready for baby and gearing up my temperature and that is helping my milk leak a little at night when i'm warmest under the blankets? i have noticed my areola's are much darker this pregnancy and i seem to be able to stay firmer longer. i would really love to breastfeed this time around and hope that these are all great signs that i might just be able to do that.
should i anticipate more leaking and leaking more during the day?
also, if you don't mind, i have heard that red raspberry leaf tea after birth is helpful with milk supply. has anyone else heard this or used the tea to help with supply? i worry that since i may have some closed ducts from my surgery that i may not have a great supply so am doing research now, when i have the time.
thanks ladies for any replies and for reading my long post.

Hi there im not sure about your other question but I have had breast surgery(lift with implants) and have successfully breastfed my little girl.  I will say I did have clogged ducts a lot more than with my other 2 before surgery but they easily resolved by letting my little one nurse alot on the affected side and pumping that side.  Just wanted to tell u that its definately possible! Either way good luck!
