2 Bumps

Weaning from BF help needed.

I went from BF once a day and pumping the other time, to just BF once a day. Then when Ds didn't want to stay latched I just ended the session and pumped later in the day when I felt full. It's been at least 2 days since I've pumped and now I feel a little sore and full. Should I go ahead and pump a little for relief or will the soreness just go away? Thanks!

  • take a warm shower and hand express just enough to stay comfortable. Cool compresses or cabbage leaves will help also. Take some tylenol as well to help.

  • if you intend to wean hime I wouldnt pump because it will dry up on its own. Thats how I did it.
