    Default When will I stop leaking?

    Hi ladies. I pump-weaned (I was an EPer for a while) about three weeks ago. Now I have some lovely deflated balloons instead of breasts . For the last two weeks I've had no fullness or lumpy places that I feel like I need to hand-express to relieve. But I'm surprised that I'm still leaking some, especialy the right side (odd, because this was always the slow-flow, low producing side). Not major leaking, but enough to need to wear a nursing pad to protect my bra. Espeically in the morning - I'll have about a half-dollar sized spot on my pajama top. Is this normal?

    Thanks!

    Did you wean off the pump, or did you just stop? I think it's pretty normal...

    Thanks for the response. I did wean off the pump pretty slowly (over the course of a month) with no major discomfort.
