    Default Am I normal?

    I didn't notice this when I bf DD1 but I've noticed it now with DD2:
    Milk comes out, and squirts pretty far if lightly pinched/squeezed, out of my Montgomery glands all around my areola! And a few of them actually get swollen when I'm engorged:
    I was just curious, is this normal?
    Has this happened to any of you?
    I know I have OS/OALD but dang!

    Unusual but normal. It's not uncommon for moms to have milk ducts exit somewhere on the areola.
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"

    Phew! I'm relieved that it's not unheard of. I showed DH and he said, "My goodness woman! Your boobies mean serious business about making TONS of milk!"
