"Stopping breastfeeding abruptly, or "cold turkey," can be very distressing for both mother and baby and can cause plugged ducts, breast infection, or even a breast abscess. Hormone levels are also more likely to take a drastic plunge, causing mood swings, depression, etc. It's very rare that sudden weaning is truly necessary."

As a few answers have said cold turkey is NOT good for either of you. What have you done to try and have baby stop biting? Stopping the biting is much easier then going cold turkey. If you think a nip is bad wait until clogged ducts and mastitis. Check out the breastfeeding moms group. They have a sticky about when babies attack (I do believe it is something along those line) that gives you all the info on stopping biting. Good Luck!
Anon 9:23am~ Her child is 11 days shy of 1 year old. While stress may cause a decrease in production the child will ALWAYS get more out of breastmilk then formula. Also NEVER clean your nipples, wipe them off with water or expressed milk and let air dry. Binding WILL cause mastitis and clogged ducts and should never be used as a way to stop milk production.
