Hello, I am currently weaning my six month old. Actually she's more weaning herself which really breaks by heart. She's always had one bottle of formula a day while I work part time and now she prefers the bottle. But I am having some problems. I had a knot in my breast so I pumped just enough to ease the knot. How long should I pump to ensure proper relief? I pumped almost an ounce.

If she prefers a bottle why not pump and feed her the best? You also don't have to stop breastfeeding, offer the breast at night when she is sleepy. Breastfeeding doesn't have to be an all or nothing type of thing. You are getting knots because of the way you are attempting to wean. Stopping cold turkey is horrible for you and baby.
