No Meds: Breasts are just funny this way! The trick thing about milk is that it just wants to keep coming... You certainly could put baby to breast here and there to give baby antibodies. If you want to stop altogether, you just have to stop checking for it . When you check, it's enough stimulation to keep it flowing! There is such a thing as pituitary tumor causing milk production, but extremely rare
