    It is very normal to have some leaking. Yes, just use nursing pads in your bra to absorb it.

    This can absolutely happen. We don't recommend you manipulate the breasts. The other person is correct, just wear a nursing pad to absorb the milk.

    If you have any questions, you should discuss this with your physician.

    My doctor told me that if I begin lactating again(I lactated for about two weeks when I concieved but it stopped) that I should pump if my breasts got engorged since I tend to get swollen/sore glands very easily and they are severely painful. Is he right?

    I am not pregnant and have no plans of becoming pregnant but my left breast has been leaking fluids for almost a month. At 44 years old I don't think that pregnancy is in the picture for me.
