I have to stop breastfeeding because of medication I need to go on for cluster migraines and continued high blood pressure (issues from pregnancy and hormone issues). I know there are a lot of well meaning mom's out there, but trust me, I've tried everything to continue to breastfeed, but I'm at the point now where my health is in danger and I can hardly care for the baby about 4 days a week because of the migraines. I feel awful about it, but am trying to come to terms with the fact that the baby needs a healthy mom.
What I'd love some advice on is how to dry up my milk? I've tried just stopping breastfeeding cold turkey and it is painful! Any other tips on how to adjust better?
