  • Take lots of motrin and don't pump when they get hard and hurt. It lasts roughly 3 days.

  • Put cold cabbage leaves in your bra...when I had my oldest 10 years ago...that's what they did and it worked....the coolness helps alot with pain

  • Only do it once a day or cut it back ever so often until you quit permanetly.
    I would only breast feed at nite and in the morning so I was not full. And by the time I had to quit It was not as hard. Good luck
