Still lactating???

I stopped breastfeeding in mid October. I thought my milk dried up completely about 4-6 weeks later. Tonight I squeezed my nipple and a little milk came out. Tried the other one same thing! Is this normal 5 months later?!

DD is 5 in two months, I stopped breast feeding at 18 months and I still get engorged if I'm near a crying new born. I'd say that's normal OP, certainly I can do the same anyway.

@Herja wow. That's incredible. The things you never know until you become a mother!

I still do after a year of no feeding. Strange how the body works!

Yeah, normal in tiny amounts. I reckon after 4+ years of feeding I could wetnurse a newborn quite easily if required.
