breasts
Hi there, I have a 7 yr old son and when he was a baby he breast-fed for the first two months only. The milk or at least the starting bit of liquid one gets before the milk eventually comes out of the breasts seems to be leaking out of my breast more frequently now and I'm starting to smell like sour milk. IS THIS NORMAL? Can you plse tell me what i can use to stop this completely? Please help me....Tanya

I'd suggest that you see your doctor to check your prolactin levels. Tumours of the milk prodcuing gland can do this.
