I stopped breastfeeding just over a week ago as I couldn't keep up with the demand of my 3 month dd. I stopped day feeds but fed at night and now she hasn't had anything from me now for 3 days and my breasts have been fine and have felt quite empty so does anyone know why today my breast have started filling up and they're starting to hurt and what I should do to avoid anything sinister happening?

Maybe engorgement, could try warm compress then massage and express a little to relieve fullness then cold compress after

My left breast seems to be absolutely fine but my right is getting quite sore and feels hard and lumpy and tender to touch in places. its been a few weeks now since I stopped breastfeeding and I woke up from a nap earlier with my dd and my top was wet from milk leaking, is this normal?
