Is it normal for drops of breast milk to come out of breast after a year of not breast feeding? Does it mean pregnant? Please help!
Yes and no for 2 Qs: While it isn't it improbable to get drops of milk from the breast, long after you breast fed the infant, I wouldn't rely on this "method" to diagnose pregnancy, for which easy to use home pregnancy kits should be used.

How to dry breast milk I have mastitis and i decided to stop breastfeeding i need something to dry breast milk

I don't recommend doing anything to lessen your milk supply until you are ready to stop nursing. ...Read more
