Express a lil till pain reduces and leave. Don't express more.

It's common. If you want consult once to your doctor. For this purpose some pads are available to soak this leaking. you can use that.

Sonali Shivlani

It's normal. Wear a breast pad and change it frequently. The breast will learn that it needs to stop but it can. take a few days. Just ensure that you don't get lumps. So massage, express a little for comfort if needed and use ice packs.

Gayatri Rao

Weaning is a tough process. The hardening of the breast and continuous leakage are signs your breast encourages for its primary purpose - lactating. When there is no demand, the supply will gradually stop. Just bear with it for a few days. This will pass too. Consult your doc if it is unbearable. Every stage of motherhood is filled with surprises and I am sure even you will wonder how strong you can be. Hang in there for a while! :)
