I weaned my 17 month old son about 2 months ago, and 'checked' the other night to see if there was still milk, and had some colostrum like discharge when I squeezed my breasts.

Yes, it can be normal for up to about 6 months. Just leave it alone and don't 'check' b/c that will just stimulate a supply to continue. If you notice it after about 6 months talk to your ob doctor.
