I need help...

Postby MommyToOne+2 » Sat Feb 16, 2013 10:54 pm

My twins have just weaned within the last 12 days. They stopped nursing while I had AF so I think I had a dip in my supply and I also had a cold so since they weaned I took Nyquil for several days that I think could have also made my supply dip but now I'm feeling VERY full and my boobs are so sore! I am also ovulating ATM so maybe that has something to do with the increase? IDK...I guess what I need help with is losing my supply. I know it can take awhile to dry up but is there anything I can do to help?
