I weened my 23 mth ds about 2 months ago because I was pregnant and I really wanted a break from bf before the new one came...unfortunately the new one came way to early and I had a d & c about a month ago...I have noticed that I have milk...do you think this is left over from ds or am I lactating from the pregnacy ending? Either way ds can still smell it and is constantly clawing at me to get to his num nums....<br><br>
are there any herbs that will dry up the milk?<br><br>

I've heard sage works, as well as Sudafed. Sorry to hear about your loss. I hope you're doing OK <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>

Have you at least considered just letting DS nurse again? It seems the most *logical* solution <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">

To be honest I am really enjoying having me back, I have been pregnant or breastfeeding for the last 5 years and for the first time I have got my energy back and am starting to feel like the old me.<br>
I have so enjoyed this part but I am also looking forward to having some nights out without having to worry and just being me for a while before we ttc agian.....<br><br>
Thanks<br><br>

Big hugs to you. I am so sorry for your loss.<br><br>
Black walnut compresses will also help you dry up. Sage is the most common one.<br><br>
Best,<br>
