How long did it take you to "dry up"?

I weaned my daughter 4 days ago. I have been breastfeeding for 11 months and 27 days and for the last 2 months she has only nursed once a day before her nap. I was just wondering how long it took other ladies to dry up? It hasn't been painful or anything I was just wondering how long it usually takes after breastfeeding for almost a year.

  • I am not sure. I also bfed for a year. After a couple months when squeezed nipples milk started coming out even though wasn't breastfeeding. I think if the nipples are stimulated by baby or you they will continue producing. I stopped checking and I eventually dried up all the way within 4-5 months
