Milk come in?

BF mommies: when did your milk come in? Emily is 2 days old and mine isn't in yet but I have a feeling it is close.

Mine is starting to come in, my breast are getting very full and notice that I am leaking now. So for me day 2/3- pretty sure It will be full blown tomorrow.

Mine must have been gradual because everyone always seems to know the exact moment but I have no clue. All I know is it was quite slow and was definitely not enough by the end of the first week.

Mine was slow too. I always hear everyone talk about how they woke up and had huge rock-hard boobs, but it wasn't like that for me. It was gradual...probably because Evelyn wanted to be on my breast all the time, but I noticed because I was able to hand express some of it.

I didn't know my milk came in with Nicholas until I saw the LC and she showed me. This time i was hand expressing to see when so taht is the only reason I know. I never got engorged both times.

I knew with ds1 and Luke because I was pumping exclusively at that point still and I went from a smidgen of colostrum to 2-3 ounces of milk lol.

I knew with dd because my bbs were so hard and uncomfortable and she couldn't even latch on it was so bad.
