increased boob leakage

Little girl is almost 6 months now, still breastfeeding, but have recently started weaning. she is still having plenty of milk feeds. the last few days my boobs have started leaking loads again. pouring out at times, much to the amusement of my DH!

just want to know why - is it cos she is having more milk so stimulating boobs or not having as much? she is feeding for a similar length of time so i do feel she is having as much as normal.

Sorry kiwi don't know the answer to that one, hopefully someone with experience or training will be along soon.

Not much help, but I would say it could be either reason tbh.

When you say you have started weaning, how much food is she having and at what times of day. Does she have milk feed before or after food or does it vary?

What about her nursing at night?
