  • It's common to not fully dry up for quite some time. Yes, pregnancy could be a cause, also any hormonal changes. If interested, you could try to initiate nursing now, or pump for baby. If you are sexually active, I'd test, just in case. But do know that this is not unusual.

  • unless you think you are pregnant - mine did this after drying up up to 2 years after because of hormones and the B/C I was on and how my body reacted to it.

  • Does your SO play with them? That can be a cause too - it took my SIL years to dry up after weaning her last baby because her DH wouldn't leave her boobs alone. Once she got him to leave them alone for a month, she hasn't had a problem since.

  • i agree with the other moms you could be pregnant again or maybe they are not fully dried
