I had the same problem when I weened both my boys. I feel your pain with the rock solid boobies! =) Hot showers to express a little milk, and VERY supportive bras are what did the trick for me. Stopping altogether IS the key. If you start nursing her again, even a little bit, you will produce more...you're right! Motrin helped too. I hope this helps! Hang in there...they will go down eventually!

well she weaned her self over the last few months and was down to just nursing before her nap & bed.. and then she just quit all together.. so it's not like i was nursing alot and then stopped.. just twice a day.. thank you for the advice!:)

I don't think you should completely stop,I think the idea is to slowly get her to nurse less and less,making you not produce as much,and then one day it's done...I haven't stopped yet,but that's what I've heard and read about it.

Since it's already been 4 days...maybe u should pump some just to help with the pain,and do it just for that purpose,and I think it won't be long until you r done.

Good Luck!!!
