Oops. I posted before i posyed my question..... my question is how do you stop or dry up your breast milk. Its been a week and i barelystarted producing milk. I really dont want to breastfeed at all. I have my reasons. And the lactation specialist agreed. She has been on formula since day one. What can i do to dry my milk???
Just don't feed. It'll dry up in its own. If you try to pump, it'll just tell your body to make more. Do nothing :)
Really cold cabbage leaves in bra overnight or all day!! & congrats!!
My cousin put ice on hers and that did the trick. Congratulations on your baby and best wishes!
I second the cabbage suggestion. I don't know why, but it works.
Cabbage didnt work at all for me lol just made me smell very grosse!! There's not really anything you can do to make it hurry and dry up :/ just gotta suffer it out.....
Thank u ladies. I heard about the cabbage as well recently. I will try it. Not alot leaks oit but its unfomfortable. Ive had to pump a few times to get it out cuz its so painful. But u guys are right. Just not to pump. Lol
I've heard the cabbage thing too. I've also heard wrapping your breasts tight and ice packs. And dontnlet your breasts hit hot water, that will just get the milk flowing.
Don't stimulate your breast in any way, not even when you shower. It will dry up in a few days.
