Feeding vs nurturing: Your baby extracts 80% of what they will get in 5 and 95% in ten minutes on a side. Anything more is just baby hanging on for comfort/nurturing. If you can tolerate this fine, but I would suggest you change sides after 10-15 min and detach the kid. You can always keep him close for comfort in a sling. ...Read more

My breast still make milk and I stopped breast feeding a year ago. Is this normal?

No: You should not continue to make milk that long after stopping nursing, unless you are frequently stimulating your nipples. Also, it seems the problem is one sided. You need to see your doctor, and have some tests done to find out what is happening. This usually is not cancer, if that is worrying you. ...Read more

See provider: Galactorrhea is the spontaneous flow of milk from the breast, unassociated with childbirth or nursing.

See your provider and get this evaluated. ...Read more
