mami - i didn't breastfeed and didn't have much of a problem with the milk drying up, but my mom did say that when she had me, they gave her some sort of prescription to dry it up. she started to breastfeed me, but then i was sick and had to be put on a soy formula or something to that effect. so yeah, the dr. helped her with that. i would ask.
and i also wanted to wish you luck at the dr. i see you have an appt. for the little guy. hope you get some answers...
They don't give anything to dry up your milk anymore. I still produced milk nearly 2 years after I had my last daughter. My guess is that there isn't much milk there-just a little squirt or two, right? Be careful not to be stimulating your nipples often also.
girliegrl - thanks, yes, his appt. is today, I hope all goes well. My mom told me they had a pill to dry it up also.
jenshim - really, yikes, that's awful. I don't really touch them. I just check every once in a while to see if it's dried up but it's always still there. I think it's a squirt, it's not easy to get out, I have to press hard to see. It's not like when I was bf and it would just squirt out while I was showering or in my baby's face when he would move away quickly.
It really is a mood killer let me tell you. My fiance says during sex he will squeeze my breasts and it would come out on to his hand or even when he's sucking on them...I know tmi but he says he tastes the milk. Not something that I want sticking around you know.
Well, your fiance sucking on them could cause your body to think it still needs to make some milk, too. I guess I wouldn't be that bothered by a few squirts of milk now and then though. The dry up pill was discontinued years ago.
i never bfed and im 7 mos pp and i still have a bit of milk like you say...the bf noticed too when we do actually have sex...ive checked and its barely...but it was happening like that to me before i even got pregnant due to my pill..
