Weaning: How long does it take for the milk to dry up?Wendy Goldenthal, Certified Breastfeeding Counselor
0 CommentsI have been breastfeeding my baby since birth. I need to go back to work in 1 week. I need to wean her from my breasts. She is taking the bottle very well. Please advise how do I stop the lactation? I have severe engorgement, despite putting cold cabbage on my breasts. How long does it take to stop the milk supply completely?
If your engorgement is that severe, you might want to consider pumping a little bit each day to relieve the pressure. Just make sure that you decrease your pumping time each day. It can take quite a while before your milk production stops completely.
