I weaned Owen pretty much cold turkey and I dried up really quick. It's probably different for me though b/c I did it while pregnant, and he was already 2 years old, and not nursing as often as a newbie would.
u weaning natalie or lilly? i weaned both my kids pretty early and i didn't really get engorged, just expressed in the shower and it went away day by day. also those cold things you put in your bra are nice!
oh and i answered my own question because duh, if you were weaning lilly you would obviously be weaning natalie haha.
Yeah I weaned Lilly when she was 18.5 months. Natalie's 10 weeks today. She's always had to use a nipple shield to latch and a couple days ago she just wouldn't even latch to that anymore so now were doing full time formula.
Took me 2 weeks of HOT baths while expressing a little milk every bath. It wasn't as bad with my last as it was with my other 2 as far as engorgement, and my last one I breastfed the longest(just over a month, I've always had trouble attempting to breastfeed and with my last I had to use a pump every single time to feed her, could never get any of my kids to latch on properly)
