    Default milk supply and drying up?

    How long does it take to dry up after you have stopped nursing? My left boob is a little sore from time to time when pressure or shoud I say, when Jake wants to lay his head on that shoulder.

    It probably will depend on how fast you guys weaned. I know that most women make milk weeks, months or even sometimes years after they wean. Just a few drops, nothing drastic.
    Have you tried cabbage leaves in your bra? That reduces swelling and will help the milk dry up faster.

    WOW really? I thought with in 2 weeks. Ha! We dropped one session every 7 days.

    Nope, I have not tried it yet. I just might! Thanks.

    NP! I was also amazed to hear that you can still squeeze some out that long afterwards
