I didn't know where to put this (here? breastfeeding?). Just wondering if anyone had any experience with re-lactation of the unwanted variety?

I stopped BFing DD#2 in June last year (2012). But last night, Hubby and I were fooling around and by the time we were done, I had milk again. WTH?! He was touching me gently but he wasn't sucking on them like a baby or anything. I wasn't thinking about breasfeeding at all (not until after when I felt the milk).

It's not a drama as it isn't much milk by the feel of it (a little squeeze and some comes out - I daren't squeeze too much, I don't want to encourage it).

I'm just wondering how long this kind of thing goes on?

Sorry for TMI - I think if I squeezed after BF my last child there was still something there after about 8 or 9 months. I think by 12 months there was nothing.

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
