Engorged after sudden weaning!

Just wondered if anybody else has has this same problem and how long it lasted for really. I have been breastfeeding my son for a year and as I have started sleep training him have just stopped breastfeeding cold turkey. Going from about 3 feeds in 24 hours to none. He has taken really well to it and doesn't seem bothered about it at all, but I have become so engorged that I am in constant pain. It has been about 48 hours now since I stopped and both breasts are hard and very sore. Does anyone have an idea of when the pain will reduce??

Cold cabbage leaves are fantastic. Also try and strap your breasts to stop them getting too engorged. It will get better in a few days I promise.
