Dear Mia

I do understand that you find it tiresome that you have started to produce milk again ...:o)

If often takes some time for the breast to down-regulate the milk production. Some women experience that they are able to squeeze out some milk from the nipple in months after they stopped breastfeeding.

If you have experienced that the milk production has decreased considerably and then suddenly increases again, it may be due to the fact that your breast has been stimulated to produce milk, i.e. a breast touch, by yourself in connection with the morning shower, or by your husband if you have had sex.

In other words, it is quite normal that you continue to produce milk although you have stopped breastfeeding. If you want to bring the milk production to a complete stop, it is important that you (or others) do not touch your breasts, it often helps wearing a tight bra.

Your GP may also prescribe a medication that helps stop the milk production:o)

I wish you the best of luck:o)

Kind regards,

Helen Hansen
