    Ready to stop

    Advertisements
    Leaking breast milk. I never produced milk with the first 3 babies, and barely had any milk production with #4 and #5, but I'm leaking a lot still now. When will it stop?? I'm FFing 100%.

    I don't know! this is my first baby so I don't know if this is normal but I'm still using nursing pads They don't soak through as much as before but they still leak enough for me to use the pads.

    I don't know because you aren't bfing at all (and thus stimulating your production) but I didn't stop leaking for at least a month or two while bfing.

    Have you tried anything to stop it?

    I have to wear nursing pads the whole time I nurse. It seems to be no different this time around!

    OP

    I've heard a woman might still produce milk for up to a year or even longer in some cases after they quit BFing. For me it took a couple months for the milk to completely dry up. I'd assume if you've never BF it would still be the same since the hormones and all were still released.
