I'm only 22+2 and I'm already leaking. Is it possible to run out of colostrum before the baby is even born and is there anything I can do to stop from leaking until closer to when my baby is born?

That's impossible lol..you won't run out of it...and sadly there is nothing to do about the leaking but wear breast pads.....I've been breastfeeding almost 3 months and I still leak

I wasn't sure. I know that colostrum is limited to the first couple of days and then you start developing breast milk. I was just worried I'd lose all the colostrum and just start having breast milk.

see that's what i thought too! cuz its only like the first few days like you said. but do these days not count cuz no baby is here??

Hun I started leaking at 17 weeks. I doubt you'll run out before baby is born. Like they have told me Your breast supply as much as the baby demands. Im 35 weeks now and i still leak here and there
And for hayang I don't know about that. But I've heard colostrum taste pretty nasty lol
