I actually had less discomfort when my milk was gone, since the 1st trimester nipple tenderness eased up about the same time my milk dried up.
Last week I was able to express a few drops of milk for the first time in months. The next day, DS came down with his first ever bout of diarrhea. He was miserable, the diapers were gross, and even though I changed him promptly every time, his bottom was soon so sore that I had to have DH hold him down for changes - and I was really worried that it was the laxative nature of colostrum that was causing it. Fortunately it was a bug that pass in a day and a half.
