Milk coming out from nipples, breastfeeding stopped an year ago.

Hi, I breastfed my baby till she was 9 months old. Now she is 2 years and 2 months old, he never ask for breastfeeding. I have noticed milk coming out from nipples off and on. Please tell me possible reasons for it.

  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    This is called galactorrhea. Some women can continue to produce small volume of breast milk even upto 2 years after stopping breast feeding. As you have stopped at around 9 months so still it's not 2 years so No need to worry as of now. Keep watch if it persists then you have to meet you gynecologist because then it needs proper evaluation.
    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back with follow-up questions.
