It's all supply and demand as far as breast milk goes. I'm 95% sure that goes for colostrum too. If you think about it, how does a woman with twins automatically have enough for two? Plus, back in the day they had wet nurses. A woman who breast feeds your baby for you, she would just continue to lactate as long as someone was using it up. So, I would think it's perfectly alright!
