Im not breastfeeding, and my milk dried up completely, at LEAST 4-5 weeks ago. Now today, I noticed that my breasts are leaking again, a decent amount too...both of them..is this normal? I thought once they were done, they're done? Any ideas?

No idea. Once I'm completely dried up I'm completely dried up. But you're looking at a girl who didn't really leak while pregnant and I only leak when nursing when it's been longer than normal between feeds and then not much....

Completely normal. I didn't breastfeed my first two, but after my second pregnancy, I would leak from time to time, even years later.

Mine keep doing this randomly too. I'll be feeding Evan in the middle of the night and my shirt is suddenly wet :S I hope it goes away soon.

No personal experience but I have heard of this happening. A good friend of my mom had twins that she exclusively formula fed but she continued to leak breastmilk for a solid 2-3 years after they were born. Not constantly, but it happened regularly throughout that time period. Pretty crazy!

The only thing I experienced close to this was after I had my first, I went on the depo shot for birth control and producing milk was a side affect for about 1% of people, and I had it. I didn't realize for about a year and when I told my dr. I was still leaking she had me go off depo and it dried up.

Totally normal! It may go completely away or you may leak from time to time for AWHILE!

the progesterone thing makes sense...i woke up this morning bleeding lightly, i think AF is making her appearance slowly but surely.

Yep, normal. After I stopped nursing, I found I would sometimes leak years later. In my case, it coincided with AF.
