When does your milk dry up after weaning?

Elizabeth - posted on 10/19/2011 ( 1 mom has responded )




I BF my daughter until she was 21 mo. She is now 29 mo and I can still squeeze drops of milk out. I don't do more than a drop or two and I don't do it very often as I don't want to encourage the milk production, but even 7 mo later, it is still there! I am most likely in the very early days of my next pregnancy, and I don't want to have bad issues leaking and such b/c I still have milk from my first child. Any other extended BFing moms have this issue?

I just weaned my baby as well and I wasn't expecting it to take long for my milk to dry up...but a week later I'm still producing so I got online and did research and I read that sometimes it could take up to a year or 2 for you to stop producing milk!
