I still produce Milk
Hi Helen

My son is 6 months old and I have stopped breastfeeding him some weeks ago after a period of weaning him off - since we started on grul, he simply does not want the breast anymore. I do not mind, and he is thriving from the bottle.

This morning I expressed almost 50 ml of milk by hand, my breast was simply leaking milk, I just had to rub gently and the milk nearly spurted out? While breastfeeding I often had to express milk using a breast pump.

It has now been 18 days since I stopped breastfeeding, and before that I had cut back on the feeds to only 1-2 breast feeds a day.

Can you explain why I have started to produce milk again?

Regards
Mia
