How can I wean my baby?

Several choices: I have had some moms cold turkey (put baby on a bottle and bind with a prepregnancy bra)& everybody in the house is miserable but a week or so later its done, I don't advise this. Some will start each feed and interupt baby after 3-5 minutes per breast (take off enough to feel soft) switch then bottle till full. Some will drop one feed every few days. All seem to work, the sweat equity is what varies. ...Read more

How quickly can I wean my baby?

How quickly can I wean my baby?

Depends: Three typical approaches: cold turkey, you just stop, bind yourself & you & baby are miserable for a week. Substitution, you drop 1-2 feeds every other day or so, supply slows, you wean in a couple weeks. Short feed, you use baby to start flow until soft but interrupt baby & supplement every feed. This slows milk production & the wean is more comfortable but may take 2 or more wks. ...Read more

How do I wean off amytryptiline?

Amitriptyline: The proper way of weaning off depends upon the dose. If you are taking a full anti-depressant dose of Amitriptyline (200-300 mg), then reduce by 50 mg every week. If you are just using it either to sleep or for relief of nerve pain, cut down by 10 mg a week. You will not get a specific withdrawal syndrome when you stop; you are more likely just to experience a possible recurrence of prior symptoms. ...Read more
