I have milk coming out of my boobs; ive noticed it for a while but i thought that the milk dried up and I quit producing it. Its the weirdest thing that i have ever seen.. How is this possible. I haven't nursed in 7 months!!!!! Is anyone else boobs doing this or did this too. :-(

Some women produce milk for a while after they have breastfed. A lot of it has to do with how long they nursed their child and if they were exclusively breastfeeding or not. If you are concerned you may want to contact your doctor for follow-up but I know of women who still produce milk years after having weaned. Some of it has to do with hormone levels in your body and less to do with having nipple stimultation.
