i was put on some medication that prevented me from bfing and my DH said that
since we had been talking about weaning, now was a good time.
DS took it well. only asked to nurse a few times and is content to snuggle with me
instead of nursing.
because i had to cold turkey wean, i had engorgement for a few days.
it's now been over a week since i last nursed, and i still have slight engorgement
and tenderness, and i leak. i never leaked while i was still BFing, but now i leak all
the time. it's very frustrating and can be embarasing when it happens at work.
does anyone know why im leaking and still full? or about how much longer until
things get back to semi-normal? i would love to not be so tender, and not worry about
DS is a happy healty 18 mos old and is eating anything i give him, and has even
started drinking milk (used to hate it).
i'm grateful for the last 18 mos of nursing and all the goodness that came with it.
this site has helped me many times from a rough beginning to mastitis and preasure to supplement. thank you everyone for all your help and support :-)
