What's the deal with my leaky boobs!!!

My breasts only had leakage issues the first month or two with my 2nd child, and it was never a big deal... Until we hit around 8 months and for the last several months they've been leaking like crazy, every time we nurse or even sometimes when not nursing and I get a letdown they start to drip. With #1 we only have the leakage for the first 3ish months and then never again. DS is almost a year old and still their leaking!!! It's getting a bit annoying... Is this normal? None of the ppl I've talked to have had this problem, usually its only at the first. Any ideas? Do I just have to put up with it? Probably... I can't think of any options.

I'm very interested to hear what people have to say. I was under the impression that my leaking would just be an indefinite thing as long as I was nursing. I didn't know it could stop.

I always thought it was a oversupply thing at first, and it seemed that way with #1 and with #2 at the start. I have plenty of milk but not an oversupply. Everyone I know who's breastfed only had leakage during the first bit, and less and less with each subsequent baby.

Re: What's the deal with my leaky boobs!!!

Depends on the day for us. DD is 8 mths. My right side is prone to leaking more this time. I must have a super sensitive duct as I have to be careful when I carry DD on my right side or she'll press a duct and I'll leak. I just assume it's all normal

Re: What's the deal with my leaky boobs!!!

I have always been a heavy leaker. I can leak out of disposable breastpads at night. It got better at 6 months but now at 8months, I am starting to leak more again. I think it is because Dd is nursing less frequently. She can self-soothe better and doesnt need the boob to calm her down. She has also become interested in more solids. I am guessing, things will even out and I will start leaking less in a few weeks (I hope at least). I was talking to a neighbor yesterday with no idea that I had a big wet spot on my shirt.
