  • i started out breastfeeding for a few weeks and didn't end up producing enough milk, and it took me about 4-6 weeks to get rid of all of the swelling etc... I've always been told to stick cabbage in your bra and it will help my friend did it and it worked for her. Hey anything is worth a shot!

  • Milk can be there for a year. Cabbage leaves in your bra will dry you in a week. Estrogen birth control will dry you even's an instant supply killer.
