  • That's normal. Many women lactate for years after having a baby.

  • It is milk, and not EVERY woman lactates for years, but it's not uncommon for it to happen a year or two later. And I don't think it will be constantly. You will probably just experience it every now and then.

  • it does seem to only happen when im in the showeror bath i guess its just the hot water that brings it out?
