Concern about leakage
I had a baby almost 2 years ago and I breastfed him for about 3 weeks. He is now right at 2 and I still have some leakage it looks just like the milk but I`m really not sure. I didn`t know if this could be something else or not. I have an appointment to get it checked but I found this web page and decided to ask someone their opinion.
Leakage of milk following breastfeeding will occur for a short time. This time frame is rather long, and you should have a full clinical breast evaluation by your health care provider.
