Giving up BF too soon, amy have to give this a go. Mind you with my last two it just dried up naturally without any discomfort. On the subject whats the best way to get a toddler (18mths) to give up the breast without a huge upset (me and her!!!) No seriously, shes really fighting it especially at night. I understand other cultures use garlic and such like on their nipples as a 'put off'??

I don't know about Sage, but Pseudoephedrine (Sudafed) may help.

I have a friend who tried the sudafed - and it did work, was very handy as she had flu at the time!

Sudafed - does this dry up the milk or put the baby off going for the breast from the taste or something??
