Milk still leaking 17 days pp

Morning ladies,

I'm 17 days pp today, and formula feeding. I'm still leaking a load of milk daily, particularly from one side. My midwife said this would normally stop between 5/7 days, however it's still going strong!! Has anyone else's milk carried on for this long? I did nothing with my first and it stopped really quickly, but this just seems neverending Sad

Any help/advice/tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance x

I kept leaking for a good couple of months after DS was born, friends I know stopped after 2-3 days. Both are completely normal, don't worry OP, it'll dry up eventually

I had our baby nearly 6 weeks ago and I'm still leaking a little - more on one side than the other too. It's a lot less than it was but it still comes out, particularly if I'm lying on my side

Completely normal OP :)
