  • Ask your doctor. I´m pretty sure there is medication that they can prescribe. Old wives tale is to wear a very tight bra with cabbage leaves inside. I´ve heard it works although never tried it.

  • You can use a pump to extract the milk if that's what you think is causing it. Just use it less and less each day. However it's been over 18 months since I stopped nursing my last one and I can still squeeze out a few good squirts (tmi I know). Decongestant is said to clear it up as well but unless your stuffed up I wouldn't do it.

  • Sage dries up your milk supply. You can also use cold cabbage leaves. I know it sounds weird but I had the same problem and it works.
