<p>DD stopped latching (that's a story for another time!) about 2 months ago, I stopped pumping about a month ago.  I can still squeeze out drops and sometimes I have a (little tiny) let down in the morning.  Normal?  Thanks!</p>

<p>Yup, normal.  The more you test to see if there's milk, the more likely you are to keep making some drops too <span><img alt="winky.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/winky.gif">   (stimulation).</span></p>

<p>A LLLI counsellor that I met told me that she had been for a mammogram in her 50's nearly 20 years after BF her last child and the radiologist was able to show her milk still in her milk ducts on the scan. I suspect that you never lose the ability to produce milk in response to enough stimulation? I have read that there are cultures where it's not unusual for grandmothers to step in and nurse their grandchildren if the mother is unable to. </p>
