  • I gradually cut out feeds one at a time, over time. Got it down to morning and night, then down to night only, until it was just a bottle and bed

  • I slowly cut out a breastfeed one at a time until I was left with morning and night. Then I stopped the morning feed for a few weeks and then eventually stopped the night feed. As it was gradual my boobs adjusted with no engorgement.

  • The maternal nurse advised me-bandaids on your nipples, was dubious but it did the trick!

  • It depends on the age of baby. I just kept breast feeding on demand then it naturally slowed down to morning and night feed, then just night and then I ran out of milk just before my son was 2. He went straight to a sippy cup of rice milk, no formula or dairy.

  • Perhaps just wean them off slowly.

  • For your own boobies sake, it’s better to drop 1 feed at the time. You can also shorten the feeds and then top up with formula/normal milk (depending on your babies age).
    When your baby protests against this, it might be handy your husband/someone else offers your baby the bottle.
