Galactorrhea: It is possible that this is completely normal, depending on how long its been since your pregnancy. However, it might not be normal if it doesn't go away.

I had a miscarriage in June but I still have something coming out my breast as milk. Is this normal (was 6 weeks pregnant)?
No: You should not get milk in your breast this early in pregnancy and it certainly should not still be present. This could be a symptom of thyroid disease or of a pituitary problem but it could also be due to breast stimulation. See your doctor for testing and to be sure whether it is true milk or not. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Dry up milk: TO dry up milk production, put ice packs wrapped in towels on your breasts 15 minutes out of every hour while awake. Wear a very tight bra. Avoid hot showers. There are also prescription medications that can help dry you up - for these call your OB/GYN. ...Read more
Yes you can: Apparently if you do it properly you can ship it. If frozen you can keep it frozen with dry ice or if you want it refrigerated use gel packs. Ship it overnight with one of the express carriers and make sure they are aware of the contents. ...Read more
3 main plans: Some prefer a quick method, bind up with super sized ace wrap & or pre-pregnancy bra & stop all feeds. You are miserable for a while but it works. Some drop one feeding a day until their supply drops off. Some use the baby or a breast pump to soften the the breast when it gets painful but but only enough to release the pressure while supplementing baby for the rest of the feeding. ...Read more
Great stuff!: Breast milk is the perfect food for babies: it has the right balance of fat, sugar, and protein, and it contains other nutrients like iron in small but very digestible amounts. The most unique and irreplaceable part of breast milk is immunity. Milk has antibodies, the tiny immune shields that protect against infections, and that vaccines will promote later in infancy and life. ...Read more
Make sure you are: Well hydrated...drink plenty of healthy fluids such as water and low fat milk. Nurse often, which will stimulate milk letdown and release, but not so much that you get sore. Also, make sure you are nursing in a quiet restful area, so that you can relax and enjoy the closeness with your baby.Stress may decrease the flow, so try to relax. If you feel your milk supply is not good, please talk to your MD. ...Read more
Yes: Sure. Just try to be sure you use just the amount of breast milk that you think your baby will need for the feeding as it should not be refrigerated or frozen again after it has been defrosted. It is not harmful to mix both together and feed the milk to your baby if you feel your baby needs more milk that you are able to provide for each feeding. ...Read more
Yes: If you are producing a lot more milk than your baby needs then deep freezing makes sense. Breast milk is good for 1-2 months in a regular freezer and is best stored in the back of the freezer. In a deep freezer, the molk can last longer, up to 3-6 months. Don't forget to label each bag or bottle with the pumped date and try to use the oldest bottles first. ...Read more
Don't waste it!: Freeze your unused milk. Once your baby has sucked on a bottle you can no longer save the leftover milk. So if you're pumping 5 oz but your baby only eats 4 oz, put 4 oz in the bottle; if he's still hungry give him the remaining ounce, but if he's full you can freeze the leftover. Breastmilk last 3-4 months in a standard freezer. You can use it in a bottle later or mix it into some rice cereal. ...Read more
Fridge: You can store breast milk in the refrigerator for up to 8 days and in the freezer compartment for up to 2 weeks. If your freezer has a separate door, you can store breast milk for 3-6 months. Be sure to clean containers (plastic or glass) in a dishwasher or wash with hot, soapy water. It's best to fill individual containers with the amount of milk your baby will need for just one feeding. ...Read more
Bizarre question: You mean pumped and stored or day to day? Although breast milk is nutritious it would only work as a tempory bridge for survival. If a refrigerator or freezer were packed with a significant supply, it might sustain someone for a period, but the creation of the milk takes metabolic work and more fluid than is produced. Eventually the individual would die of starvation and or dehydration. ...Read more
Gradually wean: The best way is to do it very gradually, slightly reducing the number or length of feedings over weeks to months. However, if there is a reason you need to stop suddenly and quickly, wear a very tight bra, put cold/ice packs on breasts to reduce blood flow, minimize time spent in warm showers and minimize stimulation of the breasts with minimal touching and massaging. ...Read more
