3rd Trimester

Moms of 2+: Breastfeeding question

Did your milk come in more quickly with your second? I weaned DD after my first trimester, so my body hasn't had too long of a break. Any knowledge or experience on the subject?

  • Yes, it took 5-6 days with my first and only 2-3 days with my second. I was still in the hospital with my second when it came in.

    Thats good to know! Mine took 6 days w/ds too and it sucked. I hope this time it's quicker!!

    I am hoping this is the case this time around since I will be more experience with the whole BF thing.  I know it is normal to take up to 5-6 days, but it is also stressful.

  • Yes it came in faster. With DD, I had her on Monday and my milk came in Friday, With my DS, I had him on a Wednesday and I believe it was in by the Friday.
  • Both were about the same, 4 days.

  • Yep, it came in pretty quick with my second. It was before I left the hospital.

    Same here.  My milk came in when ds was two days old.  I also didn't have the engorgement problems I had with dd, which was REALLY nice.

    Agreed!  DD's pediatrician was pushing bottle/formula feeding so much and I felt so horrible, like it was my fault my milk hadn't come in.  I'm looking forward to an easier transition (hopefully)!
