When will my milk come in?


Mature milk production begins about 30 hours after delivery but is probably not evident for 2 to days. Timing varies based on your baby’s capability to latch-on properly and the way frequently and effectively your infant sucks. Generally, the greater babies a person has had, the sooner your milk “comes in.” Remember that until mature milk is present, your baby is receiving rich colostrum “starter milk,” which includes three times the protein of mature milk and it is perfect for meeting newborn needs during that first couple of days.
