QUESTION

Dear Lactation Consultant,
I am 6 weeks away from having my first child. I am a black woman age 26, and I am starting to develop some milk I guess, because my breasts are swelling a little now and leaking just a little, is that normal to start developing milk at this point in my pregnancy? How much milk should I be developing between now and my babies birth?
