I have decided to give up breastfeeding, due to severe anaemia (brought on by bloodloss post birth of up to 1000mls of blood), exhaustion, the onset of late detected bilateral mastitis & my 18 day old baby not having not put weight on for more than 6 days. For 5 days I gradually changed over to formula with breastfeeding & bottle formula & expressed breast milk, she is now on formula only & slowly gaining. I would like to know how to safely stop the breast milk, as I have been on antibiotics for 6 days and the symptoms are slowly dissipating.I have been expressing 1-2oz, 4-5 times during the day but not at night to reduce the flow.Is this right & safe with mastitis???
