I nursed all 3 of my kids ages 14yrs down to 9 yrs old and stopped breastfeeding when my youngest was almost a year. You know how so many parent's magazines and shows talk about re-lactating? Well, here's mys situation: I had a complete hysterectomy 5 yrs ago. I went through early menopause for the following year. I am done having kids - and I am happy with my decision to do this, as I really had no other choice anyway.
I babysit a 4 month old baby who was breastfed for the first 3 mos. She's on all formula now. My problem is whenever she cries I let down - quite a bit too as I have to change my shirt often. I thought once all the "baby making" stuff was gone and being post-menopause that it would stop (this has been an issue for me)! Sometimes it will happen when I am feeding the baby a bottle also.....
How can I make this stop?! When I did nurse I made enough milk - I was dubbed the Dairy Queen.....GRRR!
