Can a girl have breast milk (lactating) before giving birth to a child?
Yes, in fact, I was producing breast milk two months before my second daughter was born. It is not unusual for there to be milk in the weeks before delivery; but, it is very unusual for there to be milk months before the delivery.
It turned that there was nothing physically wrong with either myself or my pregnancy; but, I did attend a doctor just to make sure.
So, while wearing breast pads for a time before giving birth may be a pain, I'm sure you, your pregnancy and your baby will be fine. However, it never hurts to be cautious, so go to your doctor for a checkup and to let him know what is happening.
Absolutely you can and it does not have to be after your first child only. I leaked milk from 6 months on. I seemed to have more milk than needed and when I lay down to sleep the pressure of my breasts resting on one another made me soaking wet every night.
It was obnoxious but at least I had plenty of milk.....
Yep. I was ready for them well before the got here! With my first it was ridiculous because I was lactating two full months before he was born and then the little bugger refused to nurse!
Yes! Hormones that cause lactation increase toward the end of gestation.
yes..... however in general it does not happens........ but exception lies everywhere................hormones controls many things in our body............ even our behaviour.......

Why do we refer to cow's milk as just milk, but a woman's milk breast milk?Why don't we say cow's breast milk, or cow's teat milk? Is leaving out the source of the milk making it easier for everyone to consume it? Why don't we just say human milk instead of breast milk? (I know, weird question,...

Some health recommendations are saying that 'freshly' pumped breast milk should be made available for mothers. Alright, I'm one for fresh milk and baby's health but isn't milk from 'mother' better than from a unknown 'nanny' or two? I know it's been done in the past and those milk sources were from...
