leaking breasts after stopped breastfeeding?

I stopped breastfeeding 6 months ago and now my breasts are leaking (when squeezed) white/yellowish discharge...I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this before?

  • Yes. My son hasnt been nursing for about 8 months and I still am leaking. Some women are just better at making milk and take longer to dry up.

  • Normal! It can be there for a year.

  • Yeah, I was totally wondering the same thing. My son hasn't breast fed in 10 months and I still leak too. I guess we're just good milk mamas, haha.
