Is this normal and when will it stop? adult content

I quit breastfeeding my son 9 months ago. He was 13 months old then. The other day I noticed a wet spot on my shirt from my nipple. So I squeezed it to see what was coming out, and a thick dark yellow liquid came out. It comes out of both breasts if you squeeze them. It looks a lot different than the colostrum I was producing when I was nursing. Is this normal? And if it is, when can I expect this to go away?

  • You can still make milk for up to a year after weaning, no worries :)

  • you should see a doctor, 9 months ago is a long time, that should probably not be the issue anymore. if it was like 9 days ago it would be a different story.

  • i would call your doctor.. it could have just not been properly discharged and hence has sat, and that may be why it looks weird, but it's best to rule out any infections it could have caused, etc.. I'm not a doctor, just going by what I would assume if it happened to me and what I would do, lol.
