Lucky for you, leaking is NOT a sign of a sufficient milk supply. You might just be one of the lucky mamas that don’t leak. (Some women leak. Some don’t. And some only leak for the first week or two.) Leaking has to do with the tiny muscles at the opening of the nipple pores. Some women have stronger sphincter muscles there and do not leak as much; other women leak quite a bit.
