How to wean and dry milk ducts?

Okay, I'm ready to wean Macy from breast feeding so I can get her onto formula for daycare. I'm wondering what is the best and safe way to do this within a week time period. Can anyone suggest a way?

Re: How to wean and dry milk ducts?

  • A week may be tough, but doable.  I would just start replacing one feeding session w/ formula each day.  Keep in mind that it will take quite a while for you to dry up completely.  I was still able to squeeze out a little milk a full 2 mos after I stopped BF.  If you can't get her totally on to formula within a week, at least try to cut out the day time feedings so your body will be able to go from morning to afternoon w/o getting engorged.  Good luck!

    I agree ... slowly phase out the breastmilk by substituting formula. Phase out the feedings as best you can. Someone else posted about this yesterday, too. Check on the kellymom.com Web site for some tips. I hope it goes well for you. I was a new woman when I was finished. :o)?
