One of the things I love about this site is that moms feel free to ask all sorts of questions, and then those questions generate positive, helpful discussion. In that spirit, here's an email question from Keely:
Hi readysetmoms. I've been reading for a while and have a totally off the wall question. I would ask my doctor but I don't have an appointment for a while, and it's not that bothersome, but I wondered if your readers might have some ideas. So here's the deal. I have three kids, the youngest of which is now 2. I nursed him like my other two kids and weaned when he was 11 months. Now it is over a year since I was breastfeeding, but I'm not kidding, when I look at my breasts, they still look like they are producing milk. I don't have the feeling of let-downs or fullness or anything, and I KNOW I am not pregnant. But it kind of looks like a discharge like when my body was producing colostrum. So I wanted to know if this seems normal and if anyone else has experienced this. I hope someone can help answer my question. Thanx!!
[Edited: While we are pleased with the amount of discussion this post has generated, if you think you might be pregnant or have any pain in your breasts, we strongly suggest you contact your doctor, nurse or lactation consultant to discuss your medical concerns.]
