I started weaning my 9mo DS about 3 weeks ago.I thought I'd do it slowly - ie drop a feed here and there but he is now uninterested in bf'ing all together (which I'm more than happy with) but my breasts are sooo sore and lumpy.
With DD I went cold turkey and ended up with mastitis so I don't want that to happen again.
I've massaged them whilst in a hot shower, wearing a supportive but not tight bra and tried expressing off a little bit but I'm so engorged as soon as I touch them I get letdown and spray the room.
I can't hold DS properly as I'm so tender
I've not fed for 3 days now, just wondering if you have any other tips at all?
