Over 90% of new mothers experience leaking breasts. Breast milk leakage is normal, just often quite embarrassing!
Some women only leak on one side, while others don’t leak at all.
Leaking is not always associated with oversupply. Some mothers with low milk supply issues, may also experience leaking from the breasts.
* Allows you to save every drop of precious breast milk - none goes to waste!
* Discreet and comfortable - no more nursing pads or milk-stained shirts!
90% of mothers who experience breast leakage, continue to leak until about 8 weeks postpartum. The other 10% will experience BML for up to six months postpartum.
What if I’ve stopped breastfeeding, and I’m still leaking?
Some mothers have breastmilk leakage for up to three years after they stop breastfeeding, but this is not common.
By donating breast milk, you are helping other children obtain a superior immune start in life. Human milk banks take donations of breast milk from cautiously screened donors. If you have an excess of breast milk, it's an amazing gift you can give other babies.
The international breast milk project, is a breast milk bank that helps worldwide.
