  • there isnt much you CAN do about the milk . You'll have to either express it out for relief or wait until it dries up-hope that helps- I know along time ago doctorsz used to give women shots to dry up their milk but they found that shot to be unsafe-so now they don't do anything-unless there is something new now-check with your doctor.-hopefully it wont last too long!

  • To relieve the pain that you will have I have heard to use cold cabbage leaves and ice packs. A warm shower could stimulate let down while you are trying to dry up.

  • Don't express it! It will lead to more milk production. I didn't breastfeed (go ahead, bash away) and I just wore my bra very tight. Keep a nursing pad in place 24/7. Take quick showers and try not to let the water touch your breasts too much *like, turn around in the shower, and use a hand held shower*. It didn't taake long for mine to dry up and it wasn't all that painful.
