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
Question: When & how to stop breastfeeding
Answer: Hello dear. It is up to you and your baby to decide when the time is right. However, it is recommended that all babies be exclusively breastfed for six months, then gradually introduced to appropriate family foods after six months while continuing to breastfeed for two years or beyond.
Offer a bottle in the evening after the regular feeding to get him used to the nipple. Start with a small amount of breast milk – about half an ounce.
Try a slow-flow nipple.
Let someone else feed him the first bottle.
Try to be out of the house. Take care.
