I weaned my 15 month old about months ago. I EP for him for a year and a month. He was premature and spent some time in the NICU so pumping was the way to go for us. My milk dried up about a week after I quit pumping. But now all the sudden I have milk again. My breasts are sore and tender. Anyone have a clue why I would suddenly have milk and I mean a lot of it!<br>
Thanks!

Test results came back not pregnant. Now two weeks over-due for a menstration and still leaking milk. What is the deal??

I think you left a number out of your OP. How many months ago did you wean? How often were you pumping before you quit? Was it a gradual cessation?<br><br>
It is common for periods to be irregular when bfing. It is also common for lactation to continue for up to a year after weaning. Sounds like you are having some hormonal fluctuation.<br><br>
If you feel engorged, express a little milk just to the point where you are comfortable.
