Drying the tap

How long does it takes to completely stop the milk production of my breast after stop breastfeeding? Currently pumping once a day. How many days apart should I pump to completely dry my breast without causing milk duct blockage? Thank you

I've stopped pumping for about 2 mths now. Nurse on and off. My boobs still leaks like few drops only. During these 2 mths, I've had blocked duct so I just hand express to relieve the pain only, not express until empty.

Hey Mama, it’s hard to tell how many days are required. You’ll need to gradually increase the number of hours and days in between pumps. You’ll eventually get there.
