Please give me all ideas and suggestions to help me quit cold turkey. This morning I got ready for my one daily pump and undid my bra. Instantly my nipple began dripping blood. Hadn't even begun pumping yet. =-( So I got that to stop and then lubed up with olive oil. I put the horns on and made sure my PIS was on a minimal setting. OMG. There's no way. I just wanted to cry. So I said to myself "All done".
I know quiting cold turkey will not be comfortible. But I guarantee engorgement is better then feeling like razor blades are slicing my nipples off.
I get about 15 ounces in my one pump a day.
I got a bottle of lechithin (sp?) around here somewhere. What about cabbage leaves and is it allergy meds or sinus? I can't remember. Pleaseee help me.
On a side note, Troy will drink anything I put in his bottle. Yesterday he had 2 bottles of BM, 1 bottle of formula, and at bedtime he drank a full bottle of cows milk. He's not picky, thank goodness. And I've done good as he is 11 1/2 months old!
