Re: How long to dry up?
The time from complete weaning to completely drying up is very individual. Some moms will continue to see a small amount of milk for weeks, months, or even years after weaning. This is not generally a problem- most moms notice the milk only if they try to express it.
Drinking peppermint or sage tea is supposed to help decrease supply. I'd try that.
