Q&A: Is My Milk Drying Up?

My breasts seemed super-full in the beginning, but now they're soft. Is my milk drying up?

Probably not. It’s normal for your breasts to “soften up” once breastfeeding is established. This definitely doesn’t mean your milk is going away; your body is just settling into your breastfeeding routine by no longer overproducing milk. As long as baby is gaining weight and is content, there’s nothing to worry about.
