Ds weaned, due to a number of circumstances and contributing factors, at around 13 months. He is now 21 months old and I still have milk! I don't have letdowns and I don't leak, per se, but there is still milk in my breasts! My nipples always feel slightly damp and when wipe at them, or ds tugs on them (which he does WHENEVER they are visible to him <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">), a few drops or a short squirt will come out. Sometimes it's orangey and sometimes it's creamy or watery. TMI, I'm sure <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">.<br><br>
So, my question is: *Is* this normal? Will it always be like this or will I eventually completely dry up?<br><br>
TIA!!<br><br>

My understanding is that it is just as The differences in how our milk flows or leaks and how some of us have an over-abundance and others less. we are all the same yet different in different ways. and, afterall, it's so affected by hormones that one never knows what will happen when it comes to those.lol<br>
