    Your DH might have to be hands off (the merchandise) until it does dry up because it could stimulate supply.

    I was like this when I stopped feeding. I fed for 9 months and at the 1 year mark I was still getting a little bit of leakage (especially during cuddle time, sorry TMI!) I always wore a bra to avoid any drips or hitting DH in the eye! It did eventfully stop.

    I fed until 13 months and still have milk 9 months later! It does seem strange that you still have it when you didn't BF. I'd definitely try some meds to dry it up.

    I never breastfed my two, from day 1 I was told to tightly wrap those warlocks up and not to encourage any refilling by letting any out and to use cold lettuce leaves to help with the engorged feeling. I was leak free by maybe 12 weeks without needing breast pads.

    i never expressed or did any 'let down' in the shower just sucked it up and wore a very tight crop top with a compression band over the top.

    meds can help but my dr said it does have side effects so if I could do it without meds she recommended that.
