Boob size after childbirth

I gave birth to my DS 10 weeks ago and sadly didn't manage to breast feed. He is being bottle fed now and is doing extremely well, however my boobs are not!

I am still producing some milk (I leak a bit when he cries and when I bottle feed him) and my boobs are still massive. Currently I am an H cup, I was only a D before pregnancy. The size of my boobs is really getting me down and is giving me a sore back. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on how long it will be until my boobs are back to a more manageable size and if there is anything I can do to speed up this process!

Thank you

was it epsom salts they used to take to dry up their milk....

according to my 65 yr old mom that did the trick

I feel the same OP, it really gets me down. After my first DS they went back to normal after about 6 weeks but DS2 is 6 weeks now and they're showing no signs. It's (annoyingly) just a matter of waiting it out, it's linked to hormones and they just have to even out. I've started taking evening primrose oil to help. They will go back to their normal size eventually smile.
