Are leaky nipples normal?

I'm 24weeks and getting really leaky nipples throughout the night, and a little bit during the day.

Anyone know of any good remedies?

Or if it's even normal so soon?

My boobs started leaking at 16 weeks, its totally normal. There is no remedy, but if it's bothersom, I'm afraid the only thing you can do is wear breastpads. And prepare yourself for it to get a whole lot worse when you have the baby!!!! (I wake up in a milky puddle every morning. Nice)

Can you recommend any good bps? all the ones i've tried have been so obvious to everyone.

I used to find the boots and tescos ones ok. They flatten out over time as well, and to be honest, I am sure no one else can see them. I don't bother with them, tbh.

Does it make a differenct with the size of breast?

Hi - personnaly I prefer the ones by Avent or a company beginning with L that I can't remember the name of - particularly during the day. You get them in Boots or Mothercare.

They have a little sticky strip to attach them to your bra. Also they are light pink coloured which really helps if you want to wear a white top.

Lansinoh definitely the best, better than Avent I think.

I liked the johnson and johnson ones, myself!
