  • Stopping cold turkey is not smart (just like turkeys are not smart birds). If you want to wean. drop one feeding per week till gone. Sage can help. There is a tea on the market called No More Milk.

    NO BREAST BINDING! It can cause a serious infection.

    There are no longer any prescriptions for stopping milk...they were too dangerous. I'd rather deal with engorgement than a heart attack, y'know?

  • I tied my boobies down with a sheet (well my mom did it for me :P) to stop the milk from flowing and I took ibuprofen. Just be ready to get soaked x.x

  • lol am i the only one seeing milf? lol sorry but that just cracked me up!! but as for stopping ur milk flow i think u should just give it time- i know it sucks but can help things along by not allowing hot water (while in the shower) to flow on ur boobs- the warmth will trigger ur boobs to produce even more milf.... sorry im in a goofy mood today

  • Put red cabbage leaves in the freezer. When good and cold put one leaf on each boob. When the leaf gets warm throw it away. Use a new leaf every few hours. Take Ibuprofen and make sure to use breast pads, you will leak alot. This helped me dry up in a matter of 2 or 3 days.

  • time, and some decongestents or anything that will deyhidrate you really.

    DON"T BIND YOUR BREAST!!!! I did that after my second son and ended up with mastitis in both breasts!!
