Sooo...it's a little embarassing, but have any of you had "leakage" problems after stopping breastfeeding months before?

I stopped breastfeeding (much to my dismay) in February. He didn't want to breastfeed anymore, he just wanted the bottle. Lately, however, I've had a bit of pain and mild leakage. No, I'm not pregnant, but oddly enough, he is showing interest again...it's so weird, I'm really perplexed!!!

  • Let him BF again if he's showing interest :)

  • It's normal. Our breasts are designed to produce then slowly stop after a few years. Let him breastfeed. It's best for him. And if you use bottles, make sure they're wide slow flow to avoid nipple preference.

  • I'd try nursing him again.

    Actress Jane Seymour had an embarrassing leaking story from when she auditioned for "The Thornbirds." Apparently, she'd stopped nursing several weeks prior to her audition. She let-down during a romantic scene. Oops!
