  • I did, once, and it was really weird. I have no idea why it happened because I actually stopped breast feeding because my milk just completely dried up no matter what I did.

  • I was still having milk 4 years after stopping after my last child. She was 5 years old before I stopped making milk. It could be caused by hormones, nipple stimulation, and probably other things. I had excess milk while nursing.

  • It is common for milk to be present for a while after weaning. Some women stop producing within a few weeks, others still have some milk after a year or two. All normal.

  • I think you can talk with your DR for a RX if you want it to dry up
