30wks with number 2 and no sign of milk changing yet, though I was leaking colostrum at 20wks in first pregnancy.

Just curious to know when it switched for others ...

watching with interest...26wks and no sign yet. Remember it being earlier than this with ds... Am glad though as i fear the nappies!

I think mine may have arrived. DS's nappies are HORRID. <boak>

PS Why don't you join us here?

I can't remember exactly, I think it was around 25 weeks or perhaps later. 30? What a useful contribution I've made to this thread grin

With DD2's pg it was 24 weeks (milk went at 14 weeks).

With DD3's pg it was 26 weeks (milk went at 14 weeks). I think it was later in my 3rd pg as DD1 & DD2 went on a 2 week strike and broke it at the same time at 26w which I think brought my colostrum in.

It was obvious when it was back due to the foulness of the nappies/potty contents (well to DH it was obvious - I thought they had upset stomachs both times hmm).

I didn't leak colostrum in my first pg to my knowledge.

Um, similar to EauRouge. Can't really remember tbh.

I think it was around 25 weeks.

I have always maintained that the colostrum had no effect on DS1's poo, but it has just struck me that he was almost 4yo at the time and all his poos were done on the toilet, so I really don't know if there was any effect or not! LOL
