Breast milk keeps for up to 6mos frozen. That way if you are unable to feed for a while, for whatever reason, you have a supply. I don't recommend doing anything to lessen your milk supply until you are ready to stop nursing. ...Read more

How to dry breast milk I have mastitis and i decided to stop breastfeeding i need something to dry breast milk
Don't be in a hurry!: The simplest, most natural way to wean is when your child initiates the process, usually around when solids are started.

With luck, she'll be too busy with new experiences to notice! ...Read more
