  • The milk will decrease with time. I never stopped completely lactating.

  • basically your milk has to dry up. It won't happen overnight and will most likely take about two weeks. What you need to do is get something and wrap it TIGHTLY around your chest...this will both help constrict your milk glands AND keep your chest from hurting too much while doing that because yes, you're breasts are going to HURT LIKE CRAZY while you let your milk dry up. Good luck!

  • It takes time. I stopped nursing in March, and I can still express milk. My mom says she still can, too, and my brother is 24.

  • mine took a while to dry up.. even when i wasnt leaking , there was milk there, start weaning slowly too, if you wean too quickly you breast may become engorged.
    it would take at least a month before you notice any real difference

  • Wrap them up REAL tight with an ace bandage. This will help with the pain. It will take a good couple of weeks for them to dry up.

  • There are lots of herbs you can take that will help stop milk production. You can also drink "no more milk tea"

    Here's an "eBook" all about herbs and breastfeeding, including this part.

    If you look through the site there, they sell the no more milk tea there too...
