Hello all,

Since it's been 20 years since I was lactating( I have forgotten!), I am curious about how long it takes for the breast tissue to shrink back to normal size, after nursing is stopped.

thanks for your input

my breasts don't ever go all the way back to normal size. I would say a few months though.
