Stopping Breastfeeding


How long did it take for you milk to go away? I'm on day 5 of not nursing. I'm not engorged or feeling any pain. There was discomfort the other day but not anymore. Also curious how long it took for them to settle into one size. I was originally a 34B and 3 months into my pregnancy was up to a C. By the time I had my daughter I was at a D almost DD. I've spent a ton of money on bras and don't want to keep playing the "my bras don't fit" game. How long should I wait before finding my size?

    I played the bras don’t fit game for a while when I bought a butt load of expensive new bras 2weeks after. Took me like 3+months.

    Try cabbage leaves on your breasts and peppermint tea! Both help dry up milk. The boobs are gonna take a while; it took at least a couple months to settle into my new size.

    I am the same way!!!! Mines I just stop feeding 7days ago at 17months, I’m hoping my boob goes down Bc one boob is bigger than the other and depending on what I wear you can notice! I hate it
