    Default Weaning my 15mon old.

    I have stopped breastfeeding my son of 15 months, Can someone give me advice on what to do with my engorged and tender breasts? How long before they stop producing milk and the tenderness settles down?

    You might want to talk to your OB. If you abruptly stop bf-ing, as opposed to a slow change, this often happens. There is a shot you can receive to help your body to stop producing milk. That might be what you will need to have...

    Otherwise, it will just take time... you need to be very careful, however, to be sure that you don't get mastitis.. so, keep an eye out for that...
