Will actifed help to dry up my milk supply upon stopping to breast feed?

I am going to stop breast feeding soon and would like to know what will dry my milk up.

Yes, Actifed could help dry up your milk. But it is doubtful that you will need it. Milk production is supply and demand so your milk production should slow down with decreased feedings. You can use the herbs sage and parsley to assist in drying up your milk supply.

The active ingredient in actifed is pseudophedrine. It has been shown in studies to reduce milk supply and nursing mothers are warned to use it with caution. However, if you are looking to dry up, it may be just the ticket. Always consult your doctor before taking any medication.

The best way to stop your milk supply is wean your child off slowly, that way your body and milk production can adjust.

For eveymother, breast feeding is the main to be a mother. The child's necessary food, vitamins everything is in the mother's milk, which is NOT POLLUTED. If you don't feed the child, defenitely the milk will get dried up. This can cause even breast cancer to you. So keep feeding the child.
