What can I expect once I have stopped breastfeeding?

I just finished weening off breastfeeding. What type of body changes should I expect?

  • I didn't have any drastic changes. I don't recall anything different. Did you wean slowly? You might get engorged if you didn't.

  • If you did it slowly, you're at your final destination already. If you did it fast, you may run into engorgement.

  • I stopped at one month cold turkey. Nothing changed. I just stopped making milk and leaking.

  • I didn't really notice any except in my breasts. They eventually got alot softer and saggy. Was back down to my pre-pregnancy bra size.
