My breasts really don't want to dry up

So I did four straight days of round-the-clock cabbage leaves + ice packs + Claritin + Motrin ... looked like I was done.

Then a week later I got a drop from one breast. Two days after that, drops from both breasts and now every time I hold DD, they keep trying to let down.

Do I need to do another round of cabbage leaves? Should I add sage and peppermint to the mix?

Any other advice for drying up?

Thanks in advance!

From what I read it takes awhile to completely dry up. I haven't pumped since Xmas eve and I still have milk
