I stopped breastfeeding my 11 months old two weeks ago. My breasts are very tender and feel empty but after my shower today i was feeling for lumps and i had pre milk come out. Is this normal?

It's normal! I remember when my daughter weaned, I still had milk for months!

You can lactate for quite a while after weaning. DD stopped nursing 3 years ago and I can still express (and sometimes squirt) some milk. It's different for everyone.

Did you stop all at once? If you did, you could be feeling clogged milk ducts as a result. I would either nurse or pump because it could get worse and lead to a case of mastitis (very serious).
