Forever? Probably not. But it can be pretty embarrassing and annoying in the meantime. It’s normal in the first weeks of nursing for your breasts to leak, squirt, drip, and spray (fun times). This doesn’t happen to everyone, but if you’re a leaker, your best defense is to grab some nursing pads and wait. As breastfeeding gets better established, your body won’t make more than baby needs, and you’ll leak less.
