Remember, the safest is a gradual decrease in lactation. Stopped production of milk takes about 2-3 weeks. Minimize the number of applying baby to the breast (the less the baby stimulates the nipple, the less milk produced). In the beginning, most often at 2-4 day after weaning, the Breasts may be poured, become painful and hot. Your goal at this time is relief from discomfort. Treat breast carefully, wear good support, tight but not compressive linen. Saivites with your hands or a breast pump only to feelings of relief. Use a wrap or cold compresses (cabbage leaves or gauze with milk serum).
Take the extracts of peppermint and sage 1-2 cups a day. It is also possible administration of diuretics (bearberry, cowberry leaves, etc.).
Drag the chest. After all, in order to reduce the amount of breast milk, it is necessary to reduce the blood flow to the mammaries. To do this after every feeding or pumping overtighten the chest, i.e. moderately to heavily push it to the edges. Use an elastic bandage or a shirt from a very dense and malorastvorimaja material. Just drag an empty chest. And remember: today, the experts came to the conclusion that this method of termination of lactation is accompanied by the highest percentage of mastitis. So this method is few, and the risk of complications is very high.
Drink more. Oddly enough, studies have shown that production of milk is reduced in women who drink more than 2.5 liters of fluid per day. But remember, the drink should be cool, as warm and hot drinks only stimulate the rush of milk.
Try to reduce and then completely stop the production of breast milk using drugs. But remember that the interruption of lactation therefore is the last resort. And should be used only when really need abrupt cessation of breastfeeding. Please note that these drugs have many serious side effects (vomiting, nausea, dizziness, headache, fatigue and even depression). And it happens that the pills have a prolonged effect and complicate the child lactation, so the drugs and dosage you may be prescribed only by a doctor.
