    When did yours come in?

    I know I'm less than 48 hours PP so totally not concerned at all, but just curious, when did your actual milk come in?

    With my first, it was about 3 days. With my second, my milk was already in since my kids are only 21 months apart and I breastfed while pregnant.

    Each person is different. Make sure you are drinking enough and keeping hydrated. There are some teas you can get that help.....

    Amazon.com: Organic Mother's Milk Tea 16 Bags: Health & Personal Care

    I've seen this in the tea section of the grocery store or in the health section.

    Mine actually came in slowly It started coming in around a week, but I didn't find myself getting engorged until he was about 2 weeks old.

    Mine usually came in later than most, of course, I was told c-sections can cause milk to come in later. But I got mine right away with my first section, 4 days after my second and 7 days after my 3rd section.
