ust wean slowly and the milk will gradually dry up. If you still have lots of milk then why not continue to feed your baby? Let him/her decide when to give it up. Don't let other people pressure you into deciding when it's an appropriate time to stop. It's doesn't sound as though you have a compelling reason why you need to wean your baby just yet.
Don't discuss it with unsupportive people! I fed my daughter until she was 2 and a half. I weaned her because I was going back to teachers' college. I fed my youngest child until age 4. Some people don't like breastfeeding at all or think it's only for newborns. There are lots of countries where you and I would be considered the norm. You and your child should just enjoy the breastfeeding until she is ready to stop.
Let someone else milk you for awhile. I am really clueless on this subject but lettuce leaves may help with the pain by placing them on or under the breasts. I am not sure how.
i agree with those who advise you to keep on breastfeeding, until the baby decides she doesn't wish to continue.<br />
Also, there is some good advice about selling your "excess."
You can spend them for other childrens. Ask your doctor about it.
I guess you get one, if you ask them.
after a while your body will stop producing it. If you want you can pump it out but that takes time and your nipples will hurt like a son of a *****.
These days you can sell it. Some restaurants pay for breast milk.
yeah...when i stopped with my daughter...the nurse told me to just stop pumping and eventually it would go away...it did...but it was a painful day or two.
It only takes a few days for the pain and swelling to go down. I would suggest cold packs and pain relievers. If you let someone else suckle, your body will continue to make milk and if you don't get suckled you will continue to be in pain. If you want, you can donate extra breast milk for moms who can't nurse their babies, but again, you will have to continue either pumping or having someone suckle to avoid pain. It's your choice.
Eventually it'll go away once the baby stops stimulating the glands..
wheres hubby at?
sorry i brought it up forgive me
