Panic over leaky breasts?

(6 Posts)

I am 32 weeks pregnant and I have been leaking since 27 weeks. I am just worried because only one breast is leaking while the other doesn't......the breast that leaks can saturate breast pads and my top at night while the other doesn't do anything. both breasts slope and nipples go much darker like a black colour but only one leaks......does this mean there is no milk in my breast or there is something blocking it? should I be worried at the amount leaking out of my other breast and should I be worried about consistency?
one doesn't do anything while the other leaks like a tap.....time to panic or is it normal? x

I'm 39+6 and haven't leaked at all! I'm sure the milk will come in eventually. I wouldn't worry too much, it's still early doors.

During my first pregnancy my right breast leaked whilst my left remained totally 'dry' once DS was born and my milk properly came in I did notice that my right breast was always more full and seemed to produce more milk. I did successfully breast feed him from both breasts for over 16 months so it didn't hinder feeding at all for me.

A Lily Pad might help with the leaking. Silicon flexible shield you can't see under clothes.
