tmi- weird lactating situation.

weird I know, but here it is.
as far as I know, I'm not pregnant. but I have 2 young nieces and in both cases I ended up lactating and I start to swell and feel sore when they cry to be fed while they were being breast fed. I've been leaking milk lately too. I'm about ready to start pumping to get some relief!

has anyone had this happen? in one case I was drinking tea with milk thistle that promotes lactation- didn't know that at the time.

  • This has been known to happen. You may want to check with your doctor as spontaneous lactation can be a sign of pituitary problems (like a tumor on the pituitary gland). I don't want to freak you out, it is probably nothing, but is worth a quick consult with the Dr.
