  • Are you still nursing? If so then it's not unusual to leak from time to time. If not you can produce milk for up to 2 yrs or longer after you give birth. If it bothers you then call your OB and have a checkup...

  • A couple months, but don't let it get you down.
    It will even out more than you hoped for! or at least it did for me.

  • no i only nursed like 3 weeks then i had to stop :-( but my boobs don't leak A LOT like they did in the beginning but once in a great while they'll leak a little...it doesn't bother me but i didn't know if that was bad if they were still leaking.
