    Default How long did it take for your milk to stop?

    So I weaned my son in early November. It went a lot easier than I expected, I was really disappointed. Now it is almost february and I still have a little milk stored...I just notice that if I add a little pressure I leak a little. I really expected not to have any milk left by now.

    So how long did you guys still have milk?

    It's not uncommon to be able to express milk months or even years (I know ) after you've weaned.
    It varies from mom to mom, hopefully others will share their experiences!

    Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act, but it is also an art that is learned day by day.

    My last child weaned herself at 15 months, and believe it or not, I kept producing milk, for 2 years after that........(when I tried to squeeze the nipple, there was milk)

    I think it's different for all women, but not surprising that you still have milk and its Feb.

    Hope this helps.

    My mother was able to still hand express tiny amounts of breastmilk out a few years ago. I don't know if that is still the case.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought that if someone had discharce from their nipple that long (many years) after weaning it could be a symptom of cancer.
