    Default how long will it take for my milk to dry?

    I've been slowly weaning my 2.5 y old daughter over the past couple of months. She was down to nursing only in the middle of the night and it's been 4 nights since we stopped. She still wakes and demands to nurse, pulling at my shirt and kicking me...but we work through that, I usually put her on my chest to go back to sleep after she's done with her fit. I suppose she's not completely ready, but I am. Anyways, I'm wondering how long it will take for my milk to dry up after breastfeeding for so long. Will I get engorged? If anyone knows please share! Thanks!

    Since you were down to only nursing once a day, and it's already been 4 days since you've stopped, I think you will be fine. I would think engorgement would have already happened if it was going to.
