  • It's normal... my youngest is six and I still have milk leaks here and there. My aunt and mother did the same... so well, if it isn't normal we're all screwed :P But I'm pretty sure we're okie.

  • I stopped nursing when my son was 4 mths old...he just turned two and recently I started producing milk again. I saw the doctor and he said some women just have overactive milk glands ...totally normal. However, if its uncomfortable there is a medication that can be used to dry it up. I chose not to take it because of the side effects...instead I drank "No more milk" tea that I got at Babies'R'Us.

  • going on 20 months post-wean here & I still have milk too. I've been told just to wait it out as long as it's not uncomfortable or causing problems.

  • It is not uncommon..... its been 3 years for me and I still have milk. I've asked this question before and did some online research on it. It seems it happens to a lot of women.
