Is it normal to leak after stopping breastfeeding for 5 month.

Ok, So I am deployed, and have been for the last 4 months. Just to tonight I was in the shower and notice some milk leaking out. On top of that I was almost 2 weeks early. I am not sure what is going on with my body. Is this normal???

  • I still can squeeze a bit out and I stopped nursing about 10 months ago.
