Hello ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If you have stopped nursing your baby 6 months back then your milk should have stopped by now.But as you said there is colostrum like milk coming out so that can be the reason your breast smell like milk and even the milk coming out may be because you may be having galactorrhoea due to hormonal problem.Please visit a Gynaec and get examined and treated.
