I would say mine are back to normal now after nearly 3 weeks. I never had any discomfort or had to pump after weaning though which I do know some mums do so that may be a factor, sure it varies.

Are they back to the size they were before you got pregnant with K? I don't want mine to go back to their smaller size but expect they will.  May well cry if they go smaller ;)

I want mine to go back to pre-preggo, or smaller (hahaha). They are more than big enough. I have never leaked or been painfully engorged, even when he was newborn, and he's always gotten enough, so I'm hoping I won't have any troubles with that.

Think that's pretty unlikely, Claire, sadly

Mine seem to be slightly larger than they used to be as I had to go out and get new bras.  It took at least a month for them to settle into a new size though.

Does anyone else's LO like to hold funny things while nursing? Colby often holds the parent unit of our video monitor and sometimes his blankie (which he isnt that taken with tbh). Yesterday he decided he desperately needed to hold his big, bulky Fisher Price My First Telephone like this. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B00000IZOR/ref=redir_mdp_mobile ::) And he likes it nestled between us so it was quite uncomfortable. Little terror.

Yes!  D used to do that a lot.  That said, she used to usually have her muslin as well which is still very much a feature even since she stopped BF

Hamish at times brings a toy with him that he then drives/walks jumps on me.. if he doesn't have a toy he may stick his fingers in mummy's 'noses' (or my nostrils) or try to find 'other one side' - the other side ::) Wandering hands!!

So- i;m going away for 2 nights for training for work.. will this be the end of my supply? Or should he be able to pick up and run with it again after i get back? I'm fairly reluctant to pump if i don't need to... Not that it matters overly- i just would prefer BFing to end because he or I actually want it to rather than because i have compulsory training to go to in sydney!
