    Default When will milk dry up completely?

    I stopped bf around 3 weeks ago and have hand expressed maybe 3 times in that time to discover it's still there. It's not affecting my cycles at all, I was just curious

    Are you getting engorged or leaking or anything like that. Or is it just a drop when you hand express? I am still feeding so have no personal experience but I have friends who say that that can hand express a drop or two months and moths after they have stopped feeding. My mum hasn't breastfeed for 33 years but she says that when she hears a baby screaming in hunger that she has the sensation of letdown! Eeek!

    Really!!! Wow. Yes it's just a drop when hand expressing. I had no idea. I just always assumed it stopped all together straight away. Thanks

    I stopped breastfeeding 6 months ago and I can still get a few drops if I was to hand express. I would have thought I would have dried up by now.

    I stopped breastfeeding 18 months ago and if I squeeze my boobs I still get drops coming out.

    Interesting. I've googled since and discovered it's common to go on for a few years
