Is it common to have a sore breast after weaning?

I weaned my baby two weeks ago and my breast are still very sore to the touch.

It is common to be sore for a while after weaning. Your body has to readjust to not making milk and that can take some time.

Yes, this is very common as the milk is building up; it will go away in a week or two.

I do not know how common it is, but I know I experienced tender breasts for several weeks after I weened my son. When I talked to my Dr. about it she said it was most likely due to the milk build up.

It is common to have a sore breast after weaning due to the built up milk in your breast. Different women will be sore for different periods of time.
