Hi Girls, I stoppped pumping about 4 months ago and I only pumped for a couple of weeks. During my own self breast exam (first one in a long time) I noticed some white discharge and a little clear (colstrum like) when I squeezed my nipples. Has anyone else had this?
it's normal, I still have a little drop of milk when I squeeze my nipple and my DD will be 3 at the end of the month and I stopped breastfeeding her at 15mo.
When I had my yearly pap smear, the doc checked my breasts and I told her and she said it was totally normal and it happens very often.
Once you have nursed a baby, you will almost always be able to squeeze a drop or two out....even years later. The longest period between babies with me was 5 years and I was still able to get a drop or two out if I tried right up until I got preg. again.
Hi I was researching on the web about discharge after breastfeeding has stopped for one year... I was glad to read your comment. I feel a bunch better, I started doing yoga recently and I began to have a soreness in my right breast a couple times now in the past few weeks. During rubbing my breast, I discovered that if I squeezed, out came a good amount of colostrum. After reading your comment and some others, I guess it is normal, thanks
