  • I'm not breast feeding, but I am 4 wks pp and my breasts are still leaking milk, I've been wearing a bra since the day after my ds was born and don't know what to do, I'm so uncomfortable and can not figure out why they won't dry up, I know when i BF my other son when I was done they dried up quickly, Any advice would really be appreciated. Tonight I might just take my bra off and see if they stop leaking after a while, but I'm kinda scared that they might get engorged and I'll have to start all over, HELP... Thanks if you made it this long.

  • just keep on wearing the bra and don't pump or stimulate. Sometimes it takes longer to dry up. Especially at first ---

  • NO stimulation AT ALL - that includes dh and even the shower beating on them. Also try taking some Sudafed every 6 hours for a few doses, if the doctor ok's that for you.
     
    Works wonders!

  • A girl I know wrapped an ace bandage around her breasts and didn't even get them wet in the shower or anything.
