Does eating cabbage make your milk stop or decrease?

I don't think so, I have never heard that.... but did anyone ever hear of putting frozen cabbage leaves on your breast if you get Milk fever( where you get infection in your milk glands.) I got milk fever right after my youngest was born and the receptionist at my ob suggested this until I could see the doctor. I didn't think it helped to draw out the infection like she said.

It is also called Mastitis, and yes I have heard of doing that.
Quoting nkymomof3:

Eating cabbage doesn't hurt your supply.  It's quite healthy like eating any other vegetable.  Just beware it can be a little gassy for you and for baby.
Frozen cabbage leaves placed directly on the breasts can help when you are ready to dry up.

You can eat cabbage. Just don't stick it in your bra. :-D

I haven't heard that, but a friend of mine used cabbage leaves to get rid of her milk after he son was born...she said it pulled the milk right out.
