  • HECK YES - its completley normal. your body is just easily ready to nurse - and different day-to-day cues can stimulate it. Heck - i quite nursing in October - and i had a dream last week about nursing a baby, and i leaked the next morning! it was weird, but i know that its normal - b/c 4 months really isn't a LONG time in the grand scheme of things. if it happens a year from now - i'd call the doctor - b/c it may mean pregnancy or some hormone levels are off in your body - thats happened to my sister.

  • yeah emotions, hormones, lots of stuff cause it... it is normal and in your 20's just discharge from them is normal but differnt colors of discharge can be dangerous (green, red, black) clear is normal and fine,,, could be that rather than milk.
