one breast still lactating??

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

one breast still lactating??

Postby kuetoo73 » Sat Dec 05, 2009 7:22 pm

Ladies, I feel like this is a bizarre situation. I stopped breastfeeding about 4 weeks ago, and my right breast has shrunken down to its smaller size. The left one, however, hasn't, so I squeezed the nipple tonight and milk still came out! What in the world?? Any thoughts or solutions to share? Thank you!

That happened to me also, but they were about a week behind each other. Milk was still coming out of one and not the other, although they had both shrunk already : (

the other one will catch up, don't worry. but don't keep squeezing it lol! It might get confused.

Also, did you have a lot of pain the first week? OMG I thought I would die the first few days and then that was it, no more pain at all. I was in a restaurant one day and it was time to pump so my breasts became engorged, luckily I wasn't leaking, but I took my ice cold drink wrapped with a napkin and put it on one breast at a time for some relief!

I almost thought it was worst pumping this time for a few weeks and then stopping, then not starting at all with dd1.
