  • it can take months to stop lactating. After weaning my kids I still had leakage for up to 6 months. Tell hubby hands off, if he is playing with them at all he is stimulating milk production.

  • I lactated until my son was 6months and I quit breastfeeding at 1month bc he refused to keep feeding off me...It hurt like crazy, but it eventually dried up and stopped hurting...
