    My son has just gone 5 weeks old.
    I've decided to stop breastfeeding as he's just really unsettled constantly crying and not sleeping.
    I have started him on a bottle 3 times a day and he is so settled so I just want to complete stop but as you can imagine my breasts are full and sore.
    So advice would be appreciated to ask what to do next?
    Will it take long to dry up?

    I've never breastfed hun but I assume its the same drying up time frame as if you use a bottle from day one, usually 3 days they go hard swollen and painful then within a week it completely dries up and goes back to normal, but obviously I have no experience with BF :haha:
