Tips to stop milk production after losing a baby?

by Rachael
(LA, CA)

I was still nursing my 18-month old when she passed away unexpectedly.

It's been over a week and I am still producing milk and am increasingly uncomfortable.

Any suggestions on how to help stop milk production or dry up the milk?

So sorry to hear about your loss.

There are herbs you can take to dry up milk production namely:

Oregano, Parsley, Peppermint, menthol and spearmint, Sage (which is actually used for weaning or for healing mastitis), Sorrel, Thyme, Chickweed, Periwinkle, Cocoa.

You can also eat anything (even sweets) containing peppermint or mint.

Hope this helps
