  • My son is 21 months now and I only breastfed for the first month of his life and never exclusively. I never produced much milk when I was breastfeeding but can still sqeeuze some out if I try, and I still have the bumps around the areola as well. It's not unusual, but go figure.

  • Totally normal. Some women can go years after weaning then suddenly start leaking in the shower or at random.

  • It's milk. It's normal. You probably really could have continued breastfeeding but lacked good support and info.
