"I'VE STOPPED: HOW COME I STILL HAVE MILK?"


Q.    I breastfed my baby until he was 6 months.  He is 11 months today and my breast are still large and I still have a very, very small amount of milk still present.   What can I do to get back to my normal breast size and make ALL of the milk go away.?
 

A. It's great to hear that you gave your best to your baby through breastfeeding!

Breast size after ceasing lactation is a common concern.  However, please note that every mother's body is different.  Some have their breasts back to normal just a few months after weaning, but others may take a while more.  All these situations are NORMAL - don't worry.  You do not need to do anything.  Just let nature take its course.

<For your information, I for one, continued being able to express just a tiny bit of milk from my right breast up to 2 years after weaning.  It dried up completely the moment I became pregnant again with baby no. 2>.

I hope this answers your queries.  If you need to, do write to us again.

Thanks for Visiting us!
