I haven't nursed in 4 days.. i know i keep posting questions about this but ive never weaned a child before. My boobs arent sore like they were a few days ago.. theyre still a bit firm but

i can push on them and it doesnt feel like im going to die. lol It feels like they will be going down soon.

how soon did your breasts go down and stop being painful?

  • Honestly, mine weaned so gradually I never noticed anything when she actually stopped. If it feels like it is getting better for you, I suppose it is. Unless something were to trigger more production like a nursing session or two, I wouldn't expect it to get worse after 4 days.

  • I used lettuce leaves on my breast and they did a great job absorbing milk, I wasn't in much pain at all.
