  • Most likely still milk. I stopped nursing my 2 year old 15 months ago, and I still have milk. I said something to my mother, and she said she can still express milk, and she stopped nursing 25 years ago! Some women dry right up, some women never do, so it's all very individual. None of it is a health risk.

  • That happened to me too. Did you stop abruptly? With my younger 2 I weaned slowly and that didn't happen.

  • in the 10 years since the birth of my first child, I have never stopped lactating, even while pregnant and after weaning. My youngest has been weaned for 3 years and I am still producing milk. It is not at all uncommon.
