Preparations for cessation of lactation
In recent years, a healthy lifestyle and proper nutrition have become unusually popular, and modern mothers who listen to the recommendations of doctors rarely just refuse breastfeeding – the only source of not only useful substances, but also antibodies that protect infants from infections. However, there are cases when it is impossible to breastfeed the baby, and lactation does not stop, it gives the woman discomfort and creates a threat of the development of mastitis. It is for such cases that doctors recommend using pills to stop lactation.
For centuries breast milk was the only source of nutrition for children in the first months of life. Undoubtedly, there have been attempts to feed the remaining breast milk without mother’s milk with goat’s milk and cow’s milk, but this experience can not be called absolutely successful. That is why the question of breastfeeding and cessation of lactation in the past in front of women was not – in extreme cases (lack of milk, mother’s illness), well-off mothers were looking for a wet nurse. Nature has provided for the gradual reduction of lactation in transferring the baby to more adult food (the less the crumb is applied to the breast, the less milk is produced). This process is painless for both the woman and the child.
