My nipples have been leaking milk now for the past week. It's really irritating.

I have no idea why, or how to get it to stop.

If I don't try to express milk out of them, then it just squirts out. It's very annoying.

I breastfed my son who's 22mo until he was 15 mo. old, I never really stopped lactating, just a little squirt every now and then, but not this extreme leakage all over the place.

Any advice for how to get it to dry up? Or any reason why I'm lactating?

Not taking any medications, been on my birth control since last August, and -hopefully- not pregnant.

  • It can take a year for your breasts to dry up completely.

  • But why would it go from almost a standstill to pouring out?
