I last fed 16mo DS two weeks ago and have had the odd wet patch. Nothing major but just a bit. I've worn and carried around breast pads just in case. The milk is really drying up now and I don't have to pump to relieve the pressure and think this makes a massive difference.

The body is quite amazing isn't it? Can't believe we still fed for this long but am glad we did it. I love the cuddles now that don't involve DS helping himself.......!

I stopped BF about 5 weeks ago (on the right side, 3 weeks ago on the left), and have had no leaks. But I was never leaky anyway.

Although I am still making milk. And LO randomly latched on and fed twice the other night. confused

Random question. Have decided to stop BF 15 month old DS.

We'd dropped down to one evening BF - is there a risk I'll leak now we're stopping it completely? (I work FT so don't want any embarassing moments! wink)
