I originally started breast feeding my Dd but had to stop at 2 weeks because my breasts were not producing enough milk. Now a year and 1month later they are still leeking! When does it dry up? It's kind of frustrating.

It can take years to completely dry up.

It's normal to take a year or more to dry up.

I didn't realize it could take that long.

It can take a long time, or at least mine did the first time.

There are even instances where woman continue to lactate until menopause.

Quoting KylesMom409: I didn't realize it could take that long.

I found out last week that it can take a while. I stopped breastfeeding last June when my dd was 4 months. I still have milk as well. My doctor told me it took her almost 3 years to dry up from her last child. You can try cabbage leaves on your breasts to help.
