    How long does it last before your boobs get softer again? Mine are rock hard after the milk came in yesterday evening.

    ouch!
    you forget every time...lol im on 4th baby and still forgot the pain!
    a few days, possibly a week before they settle down,
    ive always used cold or hot flannels to sooth the 'rocks' and drip into pots/baby cup thingys on one side (while feeding on the other) to help the overflow settle if theres loads!
    xx
