Probably not: If it doesn't make you sick with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea and dehydration then your pregnancy should be fine. If it was that easy to terminate a pregnancy we would have never needed to legalize abortion! amazing that you could still pour it out after 4 months! ...Read more

A good way to do this is to take away one breastfeeding session every two to five days. Milk production will cease soon after you've completely stopped breastfeeding.

Safety of milk: Cow milk is safe! depending on your age, you can chose to use regular milk with full fat content ( about 3%), 2% (only 1% less, not 98% less as people may think), 1% or non-fat. Non fat tastes like water! if you are old enough, like 40 years or older, and drink full fat regular milk, it is just like you drink non-fat milk and add a bid spoon of butter onto it. That is where the danger is! ...Read more
