Breast milk leaks: It is common for breast milk production to leak a bit
even after you weaned the baby from BF. Sometimes, it is from milk ducts being clogged and sometimes it is just producing the hormones after birth. No worry and
no treatment needed. It should reduce as you aren't feeding now, may take time....
