It's normal! Just so you know I was a total COW...I don't mean that in any derogatory sense at all, I just had SOOOOOOOOOOO much milk. It was 10 years between my babies, and if you sqeezed my nipples at any point between those 10 years you would get milk. I never "dried up", for my body it was like, once it got started it never stopped. I don't know how you are, but I love my breasts fondled during "intimate" encounters, so I think that helps to "keep it intact" per say! It also depends on how long you nursed I think. With my first (I gave her up for adoption) I pumped my milk for her for 1 year, then with my other little girl (2 1/2) she just weaned and I still have enough milk that it hurts, I have to express it in the shower or I become engorged.
