  • It took me about 3-4 months to completley dry up. It will take longer if your nipples get stimulated or you pinch to see if any milk comes out. I think everyone is dif with that question.

  • My daughter got thrush so she wouldn't let me feed her. I got really full, and about 2 days later she let me feed her one last time. After that i didn't fill back up.
