    well some docs tell you to ween them off.... like 1/2 BM and 1/2 Formula.... I would talk to your pediatrician!

    And get nursing pads for your bras!

    cabbage leaves, hot showers, and maybe some motrin because your boobs might hurt really bad.

    Are you truly wanting to stop or just feeling lost in the craziness of it all?

    Nothing hot, hot makes the milk come in.

    If you really want to stop, when I quit BFing W, I would just pump enough to keep my breasts from hurting. When they would get really full, they would hurt, so I would pump until they felt better, but no more. Eventually, I stopped producing.

    They will dry up when you stop BF'ing. It will take a few weeks though and they are going to get HARD and hurt for a good while.

    I am not sure. I would talk to your dr. You don't want to keep going?

    Cabbage leaves in your bra, cold packs on them when they hurt. Nothing hot and pumping will encourage them to produce more milk, so I wouldn't do that either.

    It's just too overwhelming. Last night I was holding him while watching tv and I had to change HIM because I soaked through my whole shirt (I don't fancy wearing bras around the house! ) I wake up in the middle of the night to tend to him and I am literately dripping EVERYWHERE. It's frustrating, messy, and I can't get a grip on it. He'll spend and hour breastfeeding and it's not enough so I have to supplement anyway. I don't know how I feel about the whole "pumping" thing either. Being in public is a pain too. I can't spend an hour feeding him in Targets' restroom. After we're done, he's still fussy, I'm dripping everywhere and we're both miserable!!!
