Why do my left side breast still big, droops and flat after having a baby and it has a slight pain i dont breast feed i just breast pump.

Why do my left side breast still big, droops and flat after having a baby and it has a slight pain i dont breast feed i just breast pump.

Change in shape: It is normal for your breasts to change in size and shape with and after breastfeeding. The slight pain could be a couple of things. As your milk " lets down" just before the milk begins to flow, you may be aware of a slight ACHE as the muscles around the milk ducts contract to get the milk going. Congratulations for breastfeeding your baby! He will be SO healthy! ...Read more

There : There is nothing unhealthy about your breast milk for your 2 yr. Old. I would recommend that you offer it in a cup though, as there is no reason to encourage your toddler to believe he should be treated the same as a newborn. Some regression in behavior is common when a new baby arrives, but it should not be encouraged. Instead shower your 2 yr. Old with praise for being the very important "big brother.". ...Read more

My breast are extremely sore and large from breast milk i don't want to breast feed just want milk out and soreness gone what can I do?

Bind/cool: If you ware a pre-pregnancy bra and bind your chest with an ace wrap (they come in big sizes OTC) the pressure and lack of feeding will eventually cancel out milk production. Cool compresses decrease the pain messages sent to the brain from the tissues.It may take a few days but will do the job. ...Read more

How long does a breast infection take to completely fade. I was diagnosed towards the end of breastfeeding. The infection was large initially.

How long does a breast infection take to completely fade. I was diagnosed towards the end of breastfeeding. The infection was large initially.

It depends: Breast feeding moms can developed mastitis from plugged milk duct. This can be treated with warm compresses and anti-inflammatory. However if it persists/developes abscess,antibiotics is usually prescribed. I am not sure exactly what you mean by breast infection. Call your doctor or present for in office physical to be checked out. There are cases of pregnancy associated breast cancer. ...Read more

Why do I have the sensations of my breasts letting down (lactating), but i'm not breastfeeding?

Why do I have the sensations of my breasts letting down (lactating), but i'm not breastfeeding?

Let down and oxytoci: Let down is the result of the release of a brain hormone oxytocin ( love hormone) which acts on the milk ducts in your breasts which ejects breast-milk. If you recently had a baby you have oxytocin release when you see or hold your baby. However if you are not breastfeeding and have not had a baby recently, this feeling would be very unusual and if it continues you may want to consult a physician. ...Read more

What herbs can i take to help with lactating AND how can i tell when when breasts are empty after breastfeeding?

What herbs can i take to help with lactating AND how can i tell when when breasts are empty after breastfeeding?

Herbs& breastfeeding: Fenugreek seed-3 caps (580-610mg each) 3 times a day with food and Blessed Thistle herb 3 caps (325-390 mg each) 3 times a day with food. Increased frequency of nursing helps milk production more than increased duration. 10 minutes of vigorous nursing will empty most of the milk in a breast. I recommend that if this is a recently born infant, nurse 10 min a side, every 2-3 hrs days, 3-4 hrs nites ...Read more

I stopped breastfeeding since 4mnths, yet still there is milk in my breasts.Should I take any medication to stop it plz?

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 ...Read more
