Hi there, sorry if I have posted this in the wrong place.
I have recently weaned my 9 month old - he is now happily bottle fed. Just prior to stopping about a week and a half ago, my little one was having a morning breast feed, a bedtime feed and any feeds overnight (sometimes none, sometimes one) were on the breast.
Since stopping, I initially pumped to replace the bedtime feed, then slowed down the amount I was pumping in the morning. I have reached a point now where I haven't had to pump in the past 3 days - sometimes just a tiny bit of hand expressing in the shower. Up until the last 3 days, I've been using cabbage in the bra.
My breasts don't feel engorged/hard or painful anymore - unless there is pressure on them, but they definitely still feel quite full. How long does it take for them to become less full and painful to have pressure on (for example when carrying a baby or having a toddler jump on you for a cuddle)?
Thanks - I can't remember what happened when we reached this point with my first child.
