Why why why

It just won't stop. I was holding my son today and felt my lovely broken glass of a let down reflex and everything got a little damp. This is far from the first time this has happened since I weaned him completely over six months ago.

What on earth stops this stupid lactating,so I can hold my son without pain? The doctor said that they don't really do scriptes for this anymore.

Ps Yes I've tried sudafed and cabbage already.

  • It's not I just want to cuddle with my baby without pain. I had a horrifically painful let down(the lactation consultant called it an irritated nerve probly) that triggered my PTSD when I would feed him. So I really don't see how I'm lucky or my body is telling my something.

  • I wish there were an answer, however your body is unique and so are your hormones. have you considered seeing a nature path? They may have an herb in their store that may work.

  • Have you consulted a lactation specialist? I bet they would be able to give you some good advice. Perhaps wrapping your breasts (put pads on, then wrap) for a while? I wouldn't pump, as that will stimulate you to continue producing milk. I pray that you can get some relief.
