  • How do you know you dried up?? Pumping output is not an indicator of how much milk you make. I have heard of women who have stopped breastfeeding and still had milk for years, it doesn't always go completely away. Take a test to be sure though.

  • It's possible to leak after not leaking for some time, but I would test to be sure, as it's MORE likely that you are pregnant if you are leaking out of the blue.
