    Stop breastfeeding for 4 months, but still got milk??

    Dear All,

    I have stopped BF for 4 months, and my breast never swollen. However, last night, I try to squeeze my breast and to my amazement there's still some milk and if I continue to press, there's is.

    anyone having the same case like me? When will it stop totally?

    Thanks.

    Babi

    It took me well over a week for the milk to stop and it was a very painful time as my breasts were very engorged.

    I stopped BF 5 months ago and sometimes I produce a little milk. Believe it or not, usually when there is a baby crying nearby.

    From what my doctor has told me, some women can expect to have 'leakage' for quite a while after they stop BF. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

    oh thank you, this means I'm normal too..
    I stop breastfeeding is because my baby rejects automatically when he's 12 months old...
    thanks everyone.

    Yup. I stopped for 4 months, too and still can squeeze a bit of milk out.
