still can express milk?

Postby Rymom » Wed Apr 11, 2012 8:02 pm

I don't post often, but have a quick question.

My DD is now 16 mo, we stopping nursing and pumping around 10 months. I have not nursed or pumped in 6 mo and I can still express a small amount milk when I squeeze my breast. Curious as to how much I have in there, breasts feel soft and empty though. thank you!

I have been breastfeeding or pregnant since July 1999. I have never lost the ability to express milk from my breasts.

Totally normal. My son weaned at 22 months and I could express a little until I got pregnant again 25 months later. I'm ssure I could have continued through my pregnancy if I'd tried, but the girls were too sore to try!
