    hello. I had my little one over 3 months ago and never breastfed and my breasts have never leaked. I just happened to check my right breast tonight and I am producing breastmilk still, shouldn't this have dried up by now?

    After you have a baby you still produce milk for years.

    I only stopped being able to get any milk out when my daughter was 8, almost 9, until then I could still get a bit.

    If there's any pain or lumps you would need to see your GP to rule out anything sinister, but ultimately, yes it is normal to still be able to squeeze your nipple and get milk/colostrum.

    I breastfed my LO for 3 months, and then started using a pump. Maybe you can try that as well?
    I would recommend this pump http://www.ilsbabycare.com.au/breast-pump/ because its super easy to use and there was no pain when pumping out either.
