my breast squirts milk on its own

I am really irratated. I still breast feed at ten months... my son eats offten, I am never engorged. I always switch breasts. so why all of a sudden does my breast shoot milk out.... the look like squirt guns. My shirts are constantly soaked i change ALOT in a 2 hr period.... i am tired of doing laundry.
Long story short my boobs squirt.... is it because i am pregnant or is it normal

  • you're pregnant and nursing? That's why then...your body knows it's going to have to produce more since you are still feeding for one and another is on the way. You'll probably strat getting engorged a little again here and there like when you first started until baby comes and your body knows how much extra to produce.

  • Place breast pads in your bra, that will help with the leaking and stop you from changing clothes so much.

  • Yes use breast pads. I had to use them for sometime or my shirts would be soaked.
