Is that normal? I haven't bf in 2 years, I'm definitely not pregnant. But tonight I started to get that feeling you do when your LO hasn't breastfed in a few hours and you need him/her to. I tried to express some and sure enough some came out. Maybe this is totally normal and I just never noticed, but I'm curious.

Are you still having this? I haven't experienced it myself but am curious what might have caused you to being lactating.

My SIL was talking about this the other day! My niece is turning 3 in a few days and she only nursed for 2 weeks, yet the other day she was leaking milk! I imagine it's probably normal; just uncommOn. I certainly wouldn't be concerned.

I leaked for years after my daughter was weaned. Strangely, the only thing that stopped it was getting pregnant the second time.
