Did the doctors tell you to stop bfing? You bfing during this may actually help your babies immunity against them. I would call and ask them what they recommend. To help stop lactation, if this is what they are recommending, you can get cabbage, put it in the fridge and use the cold leaves in your bra. Keep putting new ones in when the old ones are wilted. Something in cabbage helps reduce your supply, and the cold against your breasts will help sooth them. Good luck!
