How to stop breast feeding? - Online Doctor Chats
I have a query
Please proceed with your query.
i have 1.9 year old baby girl whom i am feeding breast milk and wanted to stop doing it
please advise how to stop
How many times are you feeding her?
thrice or four times daily
Usually what time of the day?
bcoz of it she is not having food properly
What time of the day you usually feed her?
no fixed timings, wenever she feels hungry since morning till night, also during night time she wakes up for milk
The best way to wean her off breast milk would be to replace it with a bottle milk.
so keep a bottle ready with you whenever she is hungry and asks for feed give her to bottle milk.
nope, she drinks normal XXXXXXX milk 2 small glasses twice daily and she will not like bottled milk
especially when she is sleepy also she prefers drinking milk
add up some flavours she likes that would be chocolate milk or horlicks.
i tired applying neem leaves as it will be bitter, but did not work
i heard that there will be some lotion kind whihc i can apply
Do you mean a lotion to stop secreting milk?
milk is gradually stopping for me as i left her in my moms place without feeding
i meant lotion to be applied so that she wont drink bcoz of that
should i contact paediatrician and ask for suggestion sir
I do not have any idea regarding the lotion to be used for her to stop liking breast feed.
You can follow these suggestions which might help in avoiding.
In the night before going to bed feed her well.
This will avoid her getting up in the night and asking for feed.
whenever she asks for feed, avoid it for time being and distract her attention in other things so that she forgets about this.
Try to reward her whenever she drinks bottle milk or cows milk.
this will get her to like bottle milk and she wont ask for feed.
As you have already applied neem paste, i feel that the lotion wont help.
Yes sir, Sure i will try out these suggestions
sure, thanks a lot for your time
I am sure they will help you.
Do you have any more queries for me to help you with?
nope as of now
Thanks for visiting me here. Bye for now.
