Why am I still producing breast milk after I have finished nursing?

I finished nursing my baby 6 weeks ago and I am still producing milk.

After weaning your baby from breast milk, it can take anywhere from several weeks to several months before the production of breast milk stops. You can help speed the process a little by wearing a slightly tighter bra, and using ice packs on your nipples to help slow the production down.

Milk will still continue to be produced for a while after you are done nursing. It takes some time for your glands to "dry up" and stop producing milk. So don't worry. It's completely normal for this issue to happen. Just give it some time and it will stop.

It is very common for a woman to produce breast milk, even while not nursing. If it persists, or you have other reason for concern, consult your doctor.

you may have a prolactin level problem if your milk does not dry up within 15 months!

Milk production lingers for awhile and teaching production to stop can take months. There should be no nipple stimulation of any kind for awhile, as this starts the production of milk. If you must pump to relieve pressure, only pump very small amounts, because each time you do, the production starts again. Best to take an aspirin, wait it out.

Just because you are finished breast feeding, doesn't mean that you will stop lactacting. If it persists however, contact your family doctor.
