Stopping breastfeeding

(28 Posts)

After ebf ds, at 8wk old he has decided he no longer wants breast feeding. He will take bottle happily with expressed or formula but won't even try latching on. I am keen to express where possible, but if we are out in the day I can't express as often as I would like. I have woken up with very painful breasts, very hard and very tender to touch, and tried expressing and got very little out (<1oz in an hour) also got very little out last night.
I'm not sure whether to give up trying to express or keep trying but I'm not sure what would help this pain? I really don't want mastitis etc.
not sure what I'm trying to ask but does anyone have any advice? Should I keep trying to express or would it be better to just admit defeat?

Started before jabs.
Used to do biological nurturing and he's stopped that too.
