When will I stop lactating!

I breastfed for 8 months and my son is now 15 months but I still lactate. Is this normal? I don't like it and I want it to stop.

  • Yep. It's normal. My daughter weened herself when she was 1. I can still squeeze a drop out if I'm relaxed enough... and she'll be two next month.
