How long after you stop bfing do you stop leaking? Ive been completely done for 7 mon. And when i squeeze the nipple i get a few drops. Also acouple months ago my breasts became tender. Gave me a prego scare because that has always been my warning sign, but im not.

I stopped leaking within a week or so of baby being born.
I'm pretty sure the rule of thumb for when you stop producing is twice the amount of time you breastfed. But idk. I stopped at three months when dd was a baby and stopped producing three months later when I got my period back.

I was able to express a small amount of milk for a year after my youngest weaned at 39 months. My one LC said she still actively leaked more than 5 years after her baby weaned.

Milk can be there for a year or longer.

Yep!

Quoting gdiamante:
