How do you get colostrum?

Just so, how can I produce more colostrum?
(Hand expression is more effective than pumping for extracting colostrum as well as easier on sore and cracked nipples.) You can express colostrum several times a day. Then feed your newborn with the spoon after nursing. Studies have shown hand expression boosts milk production for up to 8 weeks after birth.
Subsequently, question is, how long do you have colostrum? 4 days
Accordingly, how do I know I'm producing colostrum?
The production of colostrum begins as early as the beginning of your second trimester of pregnancy. You may notice small drops of clear or yellow fluid leaking from your breasts or staining your bra while you're pregnant. That's colostrum.
How do you save colostrum?
Storing your colostrum You can store your milk in the back of the fridge at a temperature of 2-4°C for up to 24 hours before you freeze it. Fresh breast milk that has only been stored in the fridge must be used within five days.
