Repeating questions: I believe this question was already answered. No, this is not normal. But, it surely sounds like your medical team did all of the right testing to rule out any concern for dangerous reasons for the latent lactation. ...Read more

Is it normal  still i have milk after 15 years i breast feed.. i wonder this one..

Not normal: It is rare to have breast milk or galactorrhea this long after breast feeding, and is usually related to elevated prolactin, and may be associated with a benign pituitary tumor. Various drugs,( including BP, mood & hormone meds, herbal products, illicit drugs), thyroid dysfunction, emotional stress & frequent nipple stimulation are all causes. Please get PE from PF. Occ no cause is found. ...Read more

Poss high prolactin: Prolactin is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland, and is normally elevated in pregnancy which leads to milk production, but can also be elevated by some drugs, hypothyroidism, stress,frequent nipple stimulation and pituitary tumor, although in about a third, no cause is found. I recommend checking with your doctor who may screen you for treatable causes. An MRI maybe done to look for tumor ...Read more

Still able to squeeze milk out of breast after quitting breastfeeding 4 months ago?

Still able to squeeze milk out of breast after quitting breastfeeding 4 months ago?

It's common...: Even after you've stopped nursing, you're likely to be able to express a little milk. The thing is: as you continue to express, you actually stimulate milk production. So don't check for a while. Now, if you are having discharge that doesn't look like milk - or if it's bloody, see your doctor. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

My son is 1 year and 1 week old. Can i give him soy or almond milk and tofu now? I'm also still breastfeeding him. Thank you.

My son is 1 year and 1 week old. Can i give him soy or almond milk and tofu now? I'm also still breastfeeding him. Thank you.

If you wish. Know : That he can develop allergies to soy & nuts, the same as to cow's milk. Ask your pediatrician about calcium supplements if he doesn't have 16-21 oz. Whole milk & milk products/day. Juice & almond milk aren't necessary; limit to 4-6 oz/day . He can wean to a double-handled open-mouthed cup now. Age at weaning is a personal decision. Know that it's harder to convince a toddler to wean @ 15 mos. Or >. ...Read more

Breastfeeding a 1 year old, eats solids and drinks milk but still nursing, mainly for pacification. Should i wing or wait till she is ready?

Breastfeeding a 1 year old, eats solids and drinks milk but still nursing, mainly for pacification. Should i wing or wait till she is ready?

Joint decision: The nutrition & nurturing benefits of breast feeding are well accepted, with some drop off in the nutrition aspect after kids are well into solids @ 8m.The nurturing aspect varies with the kid. If baby makes short work of the feed, 10min/side & wiggles to get down they are showing they don't value the nurturing as much as others. These kids can be weaned as you desire. Those that linger need longer. ...Read more

1 year baby still breastfeeding and eats solid foods! i wonder, in morning muther milk, later solid food!when he takes all? Does it cause consterpation?

Constipation: Constipation is common in young children due to diet and behavioral factors. Limit milk to 16 oz daily, encourage pears, plums and prunes. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) powder 1-2 tbsp in a drink is a daily stool softener. Yoghurt with probiotics and whole grain breads and cereals for fiber might help also. Boiled raisins in applesauce. Wean breast and encourage table foods after 1year of age. ...Read more

Not a good idea: Years ago there were wet nurses to feed babies whose moms had inadequate milk. Now there are infant formulas. In addition, there are a number of undetected infections that can be transmitted through breast milk and there are plenty of lawyers around. ...Read more
