How long did you "leak" after you stopped breastfeeding?

I just recently weaned my 11 mo. old. We were down to 2 feedings a day with a few bottles of formula. Now she is only on formula. It has been over a week, yet I still leak some like when I am bent over for a min. painting my toenails with my breasts pressed against my legs, LOL :) When does this stop?????

  • It was a while for me, more than a month but it wasn't a lot.

  • I BF both my children for 6 months. Although I never really leaked, I can still squeeze out milk and my youngest is almost 2.5, so 2 years later!
