    Default Feeling of milk let down but not pregnant or breastfeeding!!

    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone had experienced the feeling of milk let down like when you're breastfeeding but while you're not pregnant or breastfeeding?

    For the last 3 days I've been having the feeling of milk let down but I'm not pregnant and I stopped breastfeeding my DD 6 months ago. I tried squeezing my nipple and I got a tiny bit of milk coming out! What the heck??!!

    Is this normal or should I be concerned?

    I had that happen to me after stopping BF for 2 yyears when I heard the neighbours baby cry. NO milk though. Are you perhaps having hectic hormonal cycles?

    Yeah for some reason I had a really long cycle of 45 days so there must have been something crazy going on with my cycle and my hormones. The body is so weird!!
