  • Nipple stimulation maybe? Do you have a bra that's rubbing?

  • I nursed a month and mine stopped immediately. The second I stopped nursing, they stopped leaking....And yes, I don't think that is normal.

  • I haven't nursed dd in about 5 months and sometimes mine still leak when dh plays with them too much. It's annoying but everytime it happens it's a little less
