Question:hi..my baby is 2year and 6months old..she still breastfeed..bt i want to stop it now..how is it possible..whenever i try she starts crying..
Answer: I recommend starting very slowly. A good trick I learned was to cut back by one feeding for 2 – 3 days and then continue the cycle. So following the criteria above, I would recommend:
• 3 expressions per day for 3 days
• 2 expressions per day for 3 days
• 1 expression per day for 3 days
You’ll find that the average time is 7 – 10 days for the milk to dry completely, and this is rather standard. There’s little you can do to stop breast milk production tomorrow. But you can follow the guidelines above to slowly get your body to stop producing milk.
You can stop pumping & touching…the more you feed the more milk is produced
Natural pain relievers that are proven to work well when trying to stop producing breast milk are:
• Apply cold Cabbage Leaves
• Apply crushed ice packs
Question:Hello my baby is not eating food. Whenever I try to feed she starts crying alot. She only wants BM. What should I do. I am really worried
Answer: This is common dear... there's no need to worry...give her small amount of solids at small intervals of time... breastfeed her after every solid meal session...this will make her look forward to eating solids....we need to try tricks like these with our babies... being mother is tough but....we get wiser with experience... All the best dear..
