How long following finishing breast feeding did it take for the milk to dry up??

Although I never got a full flow of milk, I did breastfeed for 2 months (plus top up). However this was 2 and half months ago and if squeezed (rarely) I still get milk. Having no problems just puzzled why this is still the case.

BF DS1 for 14 months - milk dried up withing about 2/3 weeks.

BF DS2 (sort of) for 5 days - milk too about 6 months to dry up!

BF DS3 exclusively for 3 weeks, then mix-fed until he was 4 months old - milk dried up in about 2 months.
