How long does this last??
 
Engorgement?? DD weaned off the bottles 3 weeks ago and I have been weaning off the pump since then. I dropped my last session on Saturday, and have been pump free since then.

My question is how long will I have this engorgement?? I have tried cabbage leaves and cold packs, but it is KILLING me!!

Any ideas??

I can't answer for total weaning, but DD started sleeping through the night at only 3 weeks old, and it took several months before I wasn't engorged in the morning anymore. :hugs: Keep up w/ the cabbage & ice and take an anti-inflammatory (like ibuprofen) if you need to. It will come to an end. :hugs:

I bought some Aquaban to help dry me up.

sudaphed is known to dry you up to, if that's the route you want.

Generally about a week maybe 2. Use cabbage leaves and wear a snug bra. When you shower, don't let the water hit directly on your breasts- it kinda gives them the 'let-down' signal.
