Breast feeding itself has gone great for us, I have a great supply with our daughter being just 11
Days old. I enjoy nursing, but the demand of it is what's tough for me. I feel guilty switching to a bottle, soooo guilty, but I think its best for our life style since we are usually in the go alot. I thought about doing both, but I feel its all of nothing, and will be easier to do one or the other..
Any times for stopping breast feeding from
Moms who have done it in the past? My boobs are killing me! I let Sage nurse yesterday for about 5 mins each side 3 times yesterday, then did a bottle, just to relieve some of the pain. They hurt to even walk. I know the pain will go away in time, and hopefully sooner than if I waited months to stop. I'm going to take a hot shower to relieve the pressure and then ice them. Also going to buy cabbage today.
And I've been wearing a tight rich sports bra as well. But any other tips would be great!
Also, how long did it take for your breasts to stop aching? Leaking? I know it can take forever to stop the leaking completely, but for the most part?
it will take a while for your milk to dry up and unfortunately its going to hurt. I think the best thing to do is stop nursing cold turkey, when you let her nurse it tells your body to make more milk so its only going to prolong the process.
try putting cabbage leafs in a tight fitting bra, it helps milk to dry up quicker and relives the pain. It will probably take a week or 2 for your milk to dry up
