I HAVE to stop bf my 6 month old. How do I do that? He only got to nurse 3 times today (used Good Start) and now I have to stop tomorrow. Tomorrow my levels of this medicine will be higher (working up to 50mg Nortriptyline slowly) and I do not want to give him any, since I already take Ambien to sleep and occassional .5mg Lorazepam + 400 mg Ibuprofen three times a day + sometimes Tylenol Extra Strength, plus this Canasa suppository for colitis.
I have tried for over 6 months to find a remedy for my anxiety, aches and my pain (Costochondritis, headaches, numb, knots in every muscle) and nothing is working. I tried EVERYTHING (even acupuncture) and I'm broke and the damn physical therapist/occupational therapists can't see me for another week. My anxiety is out of control and it is hurting my family. I gave it my all and made it this far, and I know in my heart that I'm done. It's really hard for me since I bf my other boy for 12 months till he self-weaned. But I know I have to. I am happy that I made it this far and I promised myself to massage and extra cuddle my baby boy everyday to help him deal with the change.
But I don't know how to stop. Tomorrow I cannot bf at all, so I just don't know. I have a pump n style and think I should maybe pump and dump, but I just don't know how to do this. Pump every 5 hours and for only 3 minutes or something? I don't know?
Please give me some advice. I know it's not usual for LaLeche to tell people how to stop nursing, but I don't want to hurt my son with my stupid medicines that I really need to take. (I've been to 4 different medical facilities and 12 doctors- some big time dr.s and this is the only solution for me to heal up).
Thank you so much-
