Re: Weaning from the pump
I am responding to your post b/c so many moms read these forums
and misinformation is rampant among the uninformed.
I am truly sorry you were lead to believe that your precious infant was
Allergic to your milk.
The only infants who can not be fed their own mother's milk are those with
Galactosemia. that is a life threatening absence of the enzyme to break down galactose.
There is no such thing as a infant who is allergic to breastmilk. It's like saying an infant is allergic to their own blood or saliva.
If you are trying to stop producing milk, stop pumping.
hand express to relieve achy fullness, but do not try to express out every last drop b/c that stimulates the production of more milk.
Which in reality, if you wanted to try breastfeeding your baby again, you are ahead of the game b/c you kept up your milk supply.
