Is it normal to still have some breast milk 3yrs after giving birth.?

Hey everyone.! I am 21yrs old and I have a 3yr old daughter. Not too long ago I noticed that I was leaking a little bit of breast milk. The thing is, I haven't breast fed my daughter since she was about a month old. My breasts aren't sore and I am not pregnant. It's just leaking a little bit. Is this normal.?

As long as what is coming out is not blood stained or a funny colour then this is fine. Also look at the shape of the nipple and compare it to the other. If it looks the same then there is not much to worry about. Always check your breasts at least every three months for any lumps or bumps that were not there before and also check the top of your chest and arm pits. It is a good habit to get into. But I think this is just an hormonal glitch.

Hormones do some strange things. I'd get checked out though to rule out any other problems but I'd say it's not that strange.
