Re: Milk still in my breasts years after having my children?!

Just food for thought ... "back in the day" there was a place in society for wet nurses. Just like there were women (like my poor grandmother) who simply couldn't lactate enough for the life of them, there's a percentage of the population who, once started, never fully cease (at least until menopause). It actually worked well for everyone involved a couple hundred years ago as the wet nurse could hire herself out to feed the newborn of a sickly or otherwise underlactating mama.
I guess what I'm saying is that the prevalence of the wet nurse in history tells me that your blessing isn't as uncommon as modern society might have you think ...
