hi girls... so i had a baby 1 and a half years ago now.. and i breastfed for about 4 months but anyway im now 5 weeks pregnant and i still get a tiny bit of breastmilk.. only if i squeeze them tho haha so i was wondering.. if i still have hormones to produce milk do i have an increased risk of miscarage?? i completely forgot to ask my doctor xxx

Some women are still breastfeeding their first when they fall pregnant so it can't be harmful. Don't worry about it - some women I know who breastfed several years ago still produce a small amount

No it's perfectly fine even to continue breastfeeding through pregnancy, and like someone else says, many people do this. It's only a possible concern if you have previously had premature labour (or lots of miscarriages) Internet has lots of advice too!

I breastfed during two of my pregnancies and they both ended in healthy full term babies. I can still express milk colored fluid (I'm not sure if it's breastmilk) if I squeeze my breasts, but it kinda hurts so I've only done it a few times. I don't think there is anything to worry about.

I gave birth a little over 3.5 months ago, breastfeed for one week, expressed and bottle-fed breastmilk for 2 more week, so 3 weeks total, and now, at approx. over 9 weeks pregnant, I leak a drop of breastmilk if i put pressure on them, like sleeping or something.
