Yes, some nursing moms leak or spray milk from their breasts, especially when their breasts are full. Leaking is most likely to happen in the morning when milk supply is at its peak and during feedings when one side leaks while the baby is nursing from the other side.

A bizarre video showing a woman squirting breast milk at her fellow festival-goers has surfaced online. I don't know what kind of day you've had, or what kind of stuff you look at on the internet, but I can promise you this will be one of the stranger videos you see today. With that said, enjoy:.

She then carries on twerking and dancing before one festival-goer appears and crouches near her in an attempt to catch some of the milk in her mouth - I'm really just lost for words at this point, but at least they all seem to be enjoying themselves, so that's nice.
