Question: When to and how to stop breastfeeding?
Answer: Never stop breastfeeding without trying to do it slowly. 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
