  • It's normal. I breastfed all 3 of our boys for a year each, and had milk for up to 4 yrs after.

  • I milked for a year and a half after having a miscarriage only 2 months into the pregnancy. I guess all our bodies are different and act weird in their own ways. Was super bizarre!

  • sounds pretty normal.. its a hormonal thing too your body wants to produce and doesnt realise your not in need of it.. you could probably speak with a doctor about ways to dry yourself out.. medication or something.. but thats entirely dependant on how annoyed you are by it.. booby milk is so good for the babies.. plus it helps to make mommy skinny so thats always a side bonus! lol im 27 weeks prego with my third.. my milk dried out faster then yours.. i had a hard time actually keeping up with my supply.. and yet i always leaked early in my first two pregnancies.. today is day two of leakage for me. lol

  • Are you on any kind of medication? Some of them will actually stimulate lactation.

  • I quit breastfeeding my daughter at 7 months old, she is two now and if I squeeze stuff still comes out. I think it's more colostrum than milk, but I suspect I'll be like this forever. I really have no idea. Freaked me out the first time I noticed it, I thought I was pregnant again!
