How long do you feel sore?

I'm weaning, been pumping a little for comfort because I've heard pumping off an ounce or two here and there isn't going to activate supply. After a few days of this I'm not feeling much better so it's occurring to me that I need to just stop. I've got sore spots and am uncomfortable, esp when hit by LO's flailing arms. How long do you feel full and achy and uncomfortable?

I wonder about this as well. I have stopped EPing completely about 3 weeks ago but I still feel sore. Is that normal? I cannot lie on my stomach , for instance... I'd love to hear other's experiences.Thanks.

Still hurting after not pumping for 3 weeks? Oh no. I last pumped on Friday and am so uncomfortable today (Thursday) that I'm thinking I'll do it again. Been doing cabbage & sage. I know at some point you just need to stop but it's hard to take care of my LO when I'm lumpy and so sore to the touch.

But the weird thing is, I actually felt ok after weaning, and only after about 2 weeks I started to feel the lumps. It is not exactly painful, just uncomfortable.
I hope all goes well for you! Hang in there!

I guess I got lucky it only took two weeks for me.
