Breast Feeding- Reduce Lactation Breast Pumps Details.


Recently my daughter delivered a male child.


She has been suffering from excessive lactation and Mastitis,an infection in the breast with soreness,a red patch and feeling of feverishness.
Modern Medicine could not offer her a solution despite various Diet recommendations.

Mastitis was treated with antibiotic and it was cured, not excessive lactation.
Home Therapy of applying Jasmine Flowers on the Breast and applying Cabbage Leaves(well cleaned) has brought immediate relief and she is okay now.

Jasmine has to be applied separately and so is Cabbage leaves.
I have checked medicine sites through Google on Excessive lactation.

Doctors agree to this method.


Some more Tips.


Use dried sage (Salvia officinalis) for reducing milk supply, take 1/4 teaspoon of sage 3x per day for 1-3 days.

You can mix the sage in vegetable juice (for example, V-8), but it won’t mix well into other juices.

You can also mix it into other foods. If you don’t like the taste of sage, try putting it into a tiny piece of sandwich and swallowing it whole – peanut butter or something else a bit sticky seems to work best for holding the sage in place.

Tear off the corner of the sandwich containing the sage (it should be a very small section) and swallow it without chewing (that’s why you need a very small section).

To use sage tea for decreasing milk supply, infuse 1 tablespoon of dried sage in 1 cup of boiling water (or 20g dried sage in 50 ml boiling water).

Steep for 5-15 minutes. Drink 1 cup, 2 – 6 times per day.

You can use a tincture of sage instead: 30-60 drops of tincture, 3-6 times a day.

Additional Information on Lactation.

Follow up with: An OBGYN
In order to understand how to stop lactation, it is important to understand how the production of breast milk works.
Basically the breast sense either nipple stimulation or the emptying of the milk glands as a signal to produce more milk, and this signal passes to the brain, causing the release of the hormones that produce more milk.
In other words, by pumping your breasts, you are probably signalling to your body that it needs to keep producing milk. The way to stop lactating is therefore to stop pumping.
If this causes your breast to become engorged and uncomfortable, then you can pump a little. However, you should not pump them dry, as this will be the signal to the body that it is time to produce more milk!
As always the diagnosis and the management of your particular condition will require a physical examination by your personal physician.
Setting up an office visit with your primary care doctor or your OB / GYN doctor is recommended.
The levels of environmental contaminants in a mother’s body decrease during breast-feeding. After a year of lactation, the levels of a number of environmental contaminants in breast milk drop by 15 – 94 per cent, according to a recent study from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health. There has been little study into this topic previously.,
