How long is this gonna take?!?

My daughter quit breastfeeding... cold turkey... about a month or so ago. I'll be sitting around and my breast will just leek a drop. No reason at all... So my question is: How long will it take for all the milk to dry up? It's getting embarrassing!

  • my son is 6 months old, i had to stop when he was 3 months old. if any pressure is on my breasts then stuff will come out/its not full milk, but stuff still comes out.

  • Months...I know, another ray of sunshine. If I pinched my nipple even a year or two after my daughter quit nursing, I would still be able to get a few drops out. It will probably stop leaking within a couple months though.
