    How long are you supposed to leak milk for? I llhave bottle fed since Charlie was born and for the first few weeks I leaked loads and looked like miss wet tshirt, now its the same amount as when I was pg but just wondering when it's going to stop? Getting a bit tired of wearing a tight bra and pads day and night x

    I think your doctor can give you hormones to stop producing milk if that dosent happen naturally.

    Hey chick,
    I bottled fed from the beginning, and i only leaked once on day three. Then my boobs went huge and solid for a few days. But then went straight back to normal. I would go and see you hv or doc chick. 8 weeks seems a long time to me xxxx
