1 Bump

What could it be?

I stopped breastfeeding a year ago. About 2 weeks after I stopped, my milk dried up, like its supposed to. A few minutes ago, I squeezed my nipples (because my shirt felt wet and I didn't know what it was from, maybe the baby drooled on me or something...) and little drops of liquid seeped out. I don't understand what this is because every once in a while during the past year, I have squeezed just to see if anything would happen and nothing ever did.

So, my question is... what could be causing this?

I already took a pregnancy test and it was negative. With my two pregnancies every test I took went positive so fast there was no doubt. So I don't believe that is it...

  • Nah, it's not pregnancy. You should be able to squeeze something out for a while...maybe even years.

  • Yes . . . sometimes years . . . it takes a LOOONNNGGG time for those babies to get back to normal.

  • It could be your hormones, My kids are 2 and 3 and my boobs still leak from time to time. I asked my doc about it and he said it could be stress causing some leakage or hormones. hope this helps. its a weird feeling huh?
