DD has been weaned for almost 2 years and I still have a mild milk supply. Nothing requring pads, but under a warm shower and after being with my SO it does tend to leak on its own very mildly.
Im not expecting(I thought I was and took an exuberant amount of tests to be sure), and I dont get a cycle(im on meds for that because my normal af is terribly painful)...
My breasts are sometimes tender a little higher near my under arms and sometimes on the underside..
Its not that this is painful, or that its a inturruption to my daily life, but my obgyn said its normal-and I looked at her funny cause it just doesnt seem normal to me but thats why im asking: does anyone know about this or have any ideas?

Not entirely sure but my Mom still has milk and my sister is 17.
After the birth of all my kids she also resumed having the feeling of let down.

My mom has milk and her youngest is 15 and weaned at 2.5

She says that in a past life, she must have been a wet nurse

I was thinking that it may be because of a few of my close friends just had babies. One on my birthday three weeks ago and one a month before that.
I have been around a lot of expecting mothers and new babies lately.
I never thought of that until recently.

Baby stuff has been sticking out in my life lately. A lot of friends either asking me breastfeeding advice, shopping with them for baby/breastfeeding supplies, helping them get ready for labor....Maybe my body is sensitive to those things, feeling that I want one more...
