  • I would stop, and keep nursing on demand. May I ask why you felt you needed it in the first place?

  • Krysta, I thought I needed it, becuase I thought baby wasn't getting enough milk, now I know I was wrong and he was just going thru growth spurts...But I do like to have frozen milk in the freezer..

  • If you know that you didn't need it before, and you don't need it now, then I'd probably stop. You don't need tons of milk frozen, especially since it's not going to last forever in the freezer, 6 mos MAXIMUM...I'd stop and see if I noticed any change.

  • I've been taking it for a while and there will be times when i don't t take it for a while and nothing has happened to my supply.
