  • If you are breastfeeding then yes.. lol.
    If not, I'd talk to your doctor because your milk should have dried up by now.

  • Yes, it's very normal, even if you aren't breastfeeding. Some women continue to leak, forever. My daughter is 19 months and I will still leak on occasion. I talked to my dr and as long as it isn't enough for you to wear a breast pad, and not an every day, when baby is hungry type of leaking, your fine.
