how to stop breast milk production
A long read but great. On day 4 of Theo's young little life we saw a lactation consultant and discovered he'd lost 12% of his birth weight and my milk wasn't coming in fully. Luckily they encouraged me to supplement with formula with a tube at the breast so we could still (hopefully) get it going. This worked for about 2 days and then nothing, pumped for two weeks almost round the clock every two to three hours. So trying to feed for half an hour then pumping for half an hour... and barely sleeping, drinking 9 to 10 glasses of water a day along with mother's milk plus supplements all of which added nothing to my milk how to stop breast milk production. He finally stopped at the breast all together and is thriving on formula. We had to do what was best for his health and for me. I am 100% pro breast feeding, go as long as you can! BUT baby's health comes first and I don't regret one single second of anything. So mamas feed on, however you can!
