Help, how do I get my milk to stop?
Ok, I don't know why my milk is still coming in.  My son stopped breast feeding almost 3 months ago and my milk hasn't dried up.  How do I get it to stop?

Sorry I am not of much help. My milk dried up 1-2 weeks after I stopped bfing. I would call your OB. Good luck! :)

Yeah, I think they are going to have to give me something to stop it.  It's really strange.

I wanted to ask you how Jayden is doing with the "episodes" ? Hopefully, it hasn't happened again. Did you hear from your doctor?

Thanks for asking.  He hasn't had one since Sunday but I have an appointment to bring him in today at 4:30.  I will let you know what happened.  Hopefully it's just my baby being strange.

mami - i didn't breastfeed and didn't have much of a problem with the milk drying up, but my mom did say that when she had me, they gave her some sort of prescription to dry it up. she started to breastfeed me, but then i was sick and had to be put on a soy formula or something to that effect. so yeah, the dr. helped her with that. i would ask.

and i also wanted to wish you luck at the dr. i see you have an appt. for the little guy. hope you get some answers...

They don't give anything to dry up your milk anymore. I still produced milk nearly 2 years after I had my last daughter. My guess is that there isn't much milk there-just a little squirt or two, right? Be careful not to be stimulating your nipples often also.

girliegrl - thanks, yes, his appt. is today, I hope all goes well.  My mom told me they had a pill to dry it up also.

jenshim - really, yikes, that's awful.  I don't really touch them.  I just check every once in a while to see if it's dried up but it's always still there.  I think it's a squirt, it's not easy to get out, I have to press hard to see.  It's not like when I was bf and it would just squirt out while I was showering or in my baby's face when he would move away quickly.  

It really is a mood killer let me tell you.  My fiance says during sex he will squeeze my breasts and it would come out on to his hand or even when he's sucking on them...I know tmi but he says he tastes the milk.  Not something that I want sticking around you know.

Well, your fiance sucking on them could cause your body to think it still needs to make some milk, too. I guess I wouldn't be that bothered by a few squirts of milk now and then though. The dry up pill was discontinued years ago.

True, that may be why it's still there.  I guess I can check with my doc but if there really isn't anything I can do then I guess it's something that I will just have to deal with.

Thanks ladies.
