    Default Still have milk 3 months after stopping bf!

    Is this weird? Fed ds for 15 months and I can still very easily squeeze out milk! It's white at first, then kind of clear. I don't do much as I don't want to encourage it, but check every few weeks. Tonight I got several drops no prob, and I'm sure there was more if I'd kept going. Don't feel full at all. Shouldn't it be gone now? Thanks : )

    Yep - I only recently (like in the last 6 months) stopped getting milk, and I stopped breastfeeding 2 years ago.

    You can have milk for years. It's why relactation is possible. The longest I've known personally is 9 years

    You can still have milk for years. I've had milk in mine since 2008, with children born 2008 (BF 13months), 2010 (BF 11months), and one due any day now.
