Still spraying 8.5 months PP?

Is it normal to still spray occasionally at this point? Sometimes when I feel a little full, LO will unlatch and it'll just spray for a while. Sometimes when I pump and then try to hand express after i'll notice that it doesn't come out in drops, it'll spray. 

I don't have an over supply (I struggle to pump the 12 oz LO needs for daycare) and LO does seem to empty at least 1 breast at each feed. Also, his eating is somewhat erratic and I feed him on demand so the length in between feeds does change occasionally. But... i figured that i'd stop by this point. But then again, this is my first time nursing this long so I don't know. Is it normal or do I still have OALD?

TIA!

  • I have a very forceful letdown and sprayed the entire time I nursed DD (12 mo). I saw no reason to be concerned. We are just the lucky people that have to wear pads for our whole nursing journey!

  • If DD unlatches shortly after let down, especially in the morning, she gets sprayed in the face poor girl lol. I've gotten used to keeping a hand close by to minimize the shot to her face
