oh honey, you may be in for a long go. i stopped breastfeeding when my daughter was 8 months cause she weaned herself and i leaked until she was 18 months, and if i tried even up until she was 2 i could squeeze some out.

I decided not to breastfeed and i wouldn't leak but if i squeezed, some would come out. My daughter is now almost five months and I have to squeeze pretty hard, but a few drops come out. It took a couple weeks after I stopped pumping to stop leaking and it only happened when I was full....not randomly. I never had to use those little pads.

i decided not to breastfeed because i wasn't producing enough, but it took a week for them to dry up. and 6 weeks ago is when i had my daughter, and i still once and awhile find my self leaking a tad bit, kind of like you did before your child was born. its not an everyday thing though, its just once in a great while. i guess it all just depends on people.
