    Default Still lactating more than 8 months later...

    Hello! My son weaned himself at almost 3 in October. It's June 16 and I am still lactating. Not a lot, but i am definitely still producing some, if very little, milk. Is this normal? Thanks!!!

    My mom said she could still hand express right up until she started having menopause symptoms ~20 years after her last baby. But she had 4 of us so she nursed for a long time.
