Is this normal? Stopped feeding my ds 4 months ago at 20mo and still seem to be able to squeeze milk out of my 'good' side.
Have done nothing to stimulate production since I have stopped other than the bit of a squeeze today which was only because I had a bit of a pain in my breast which I can only describe as a blocked duct type feeling.
I stopped feeding very very gradually over many weeks as ds got less interested. I do think I always had a pretty robust supply but this seems a little ridiculous.
So, anyone else had this? Should I be concerned at all? Pain in boob has gone now btw.
Wow, I never realised. I stressed so much with ds about my milk drying up because he'd slept a bit longer and especially when I thought he was on a nursing strike (which with hindsight was him weaning). I know some ppl where there milk has gone overnight seemingly and was so keen to feed for as long as possible I was scared of this happening. I'm still a bit upset he didn't want to feed after 20mo.
Do you think some womens supply is just more 'fragile' than others and I'm a lucky one? Is it likely to be the same next time?
