I'm an EP mummy and would like to stop pumping when I return to work. Any tips? I've been lengthening the time between pumps but I'm still yielding quite a bit and the engorgement is no joke ?
Don’t empty the breasts completely. Pump out about 75% so your breasts are soft and you feel comfortable. Then put cold packs/cabbage. And gradually lengthen the pumping intervals as you’re doing. At night, sleep. Don’t pump unless the engorgement wakes you up. Let someone else do the feeding. That will also drop the supply:)Read more
