There is a pill but I would use it as a last resort as I have heard some pretty crazy stories about it but who knows maybe it has been changed since then. Definately look into it and do some research first. It took me about 7 months to stop producing milk after breastfeeding.

The Cold RAW Cabbage leaves work. its weird but true. Just put them in your bra around the house and change them out once they get warm.

You diet can also affect you supply. If you are eating oatmeal it can keep your supply coming in.

After I weaned it took me about 3 months to get rid of it all but my boobs stayed the same size. Pre Preg i was a C. i am now a DD.

Cold cabage works, but my breast never went down, I ended up having a breast reduction because of the back pain.

Yes, they ended up about the same size, but my friend started out a B cup and ended up a C after breastfeeding and my mom started out a D and ended up an A after breastfeeding. So it can definately change them. And it does take a while to stop producing because I didn't stop until my daughter was 8 months old and she was down to 2 five minute feedings a day just for naps so really, I wasn't producing that much by then and it still took 7 months to go away. At 4 months old, your baby was probably feeding several times a day and your body would have to be constantly producing, so I could see it taking quite a while. If you aren't having any lumps or pain, I think it is probably normal, but you still might want to ask a lactation consultant or nurse about it if you are worried.
