Hi ladies, we've been weaned for over a week now, and Hendrix is doing great. I was too, up until recently. My left breast isn't dried up but it stopped producing milk after a couple of days off the breast. No changes in it. My right breast, however is huge. It didn't change at all for days, then out of nowhere, around 4 days or so, it started getting bigger. It is now at least a full 2 cup sizes bigger. It is very hard and painful. I've been using cabbage leaves for days, peppermint oil, taking lecithin for 3 days, have kept it out of hot water. I'm at my wits end! I'm afraid of getting mastitis. Any advice? Will the right side ever go back to normal? Ive had to wear loose fitting clothing because there is a very noticeable difference. I mean it's seriously night and day between them.
