Is it normal to still have breast milk after three years?

Is it normal to still have breast milk after three years?

Yes: Breastfeeding at least every two to three hours helps to maintain milk production. For most women, eight breastfeeding or pumping sessions every 24 hours keeps their milk production high.

I had my son 3 years ago and have never breast fed why do I still have breast milk?

Need prolactin level: B"sd that's an interesting circumstance. Are you having regular menses - if you are much less likely to be a significant issue such as pituitary tumor (prolactinoma).

Probably not: You should see your doctor. Galactorrhea can be a result of exercise (such as jogging) or activities that cause stimulation of the nipples or it may be due to medications that cause an elevated prolactin level, however there are tumors that can cause galactorrhea. The cause may be harmless, but it would be appropriate to investigate. ...Read more

If the pituitary is normal, then no, unless you're prone to migraines anyways you should be fine. ...Read more
