So today I had my 25 week check up and after a short discussion with my MW, I think I would like to start expressing colostrum and freezing it until baby is born which I will then BF until my milk appears and then give baby the frozen stuff.
Have any of you done this and if so, is it too early to start?

I havent a clue. I know she mentioned about it and whether I had thought about it. I guess I can look into it more nearer the time. I did do a quick Google (I know you shouldn't!) and read it is generally said to do it from 3 weeks if you plan to as it can cause some hormone or other being released that can cause premature labour
I'll have a read up about it etc and worst case scenario, I will just BF/express when baby gets here
