  • Wow. I am unsure why you are still lactating. Maybe your hormones haven't gotten use to the change. Also, Sort of personal, b ut if you have a significant other and they play with them such as a child would then that will most definitely keep you flowing.

  • That's the thing... They hardley ever get played with! And its not like they get hard bc their full of milk, they stay the same but just sometimes will leak milk and if I push down on them, it squirts out.
