What's Going On? :(

I've been trying to do this weaning thing for about a week or so now, maybe more (haven't really kept track). The engorgement seems as if it's gone down, compared to how it used to be when I was still breastfeeding her. I've read that sage tea helps stop the milk supply. I've been drinking it, religiously, but don't see much results of it going away. I've gotten this lump on my left side, that feels like possibly a cluster? Like, milk is backed up or something. I don't know if it's a vein, or what, I just want the swelling & milk to stop! Can anyone give suggestions as to what else may work? This is taking longer than I'd like/want, lol.

It took mine about two weeks to stop hurting and to stop producing. You just have to give it time that I know of. I was never told differently. But to wear a sports bra and breast pads for the leaking. I used the hot water in the shower to help with the pain, but then was told not too because it keeps the milk producing.

Yeah, I read that too. I'll just keep drinking the tea. The milk hasn't been coming in as frequently as it previously was, so the tea is working. I think I'm just impatient, lol. Did you ever experience a lump after you stopped feeding?
