My son takes a bottle and seems to prefer it but what is the best way to wean him and not be in pain? Is there anything the Dr can give me to dry up my milk?

there great cabbage leave the small one, its amazing how hot they are once they come off put them in the freezer for a minute before you use them just to get them extra cold.

It took me two to three months my milk eventually slowed down this is at 11 months, would remove one feed and replace it with a meal or snack or maybe try cows milk watered down that worked for me it wasnt easy though cause my boy was a tits man.

no it takes roughly 3 days for your milk to dry up. best advice I got was to quit cold turkey because your baby will eat when it is hungry they wont starve. Just take a couple of warm showers that will help with the pain if you feel any.

I just weaned my son and the best advice I could give is to cut out one feeding every 3 days or so until he is completely on the bottle. That way your milk supply declines gradually you will still have a few days of not really pain but tenderness at least that is what I had. Good luck.
