How can I completely dry up my milk?

I stopped breastfeeding entirely about four months ago, and I’m still producing milk. Obviously not like I was, but if my daughter leans in my chest wrong or something, milk still comes out. Is there a way to completely dry up my milk??


BIRTH CONTROL. It’s the only sure way.

Cabbage leaves in your bra :slight_smile:


A Dr can give you something…


There is a type of tea you can drink. I think it’s peppermint! But look it up to be sure. Also, cabbage leaves in your bra!

Sudafed D. The D part will dry you up.

Purple cabbage in your bra. Replace when it’s no longer cold. Worked for me

Sudafed or benedryl has helped.

My youngest is 8 years old and still have milk sometimes dripping… good luck :joy:


Cabbage for sure! Put in bra and then wrap like an Ace wrap around to make it snug and it will work. Replace when it’s not cold anymore. Works!

What I did was nipple pads and didn’t touch those suckers .

Some women just take longer than others. Expressing milk to check can slow down the process too. I agree on sage and mint tea.

I had milk after my first for 7 years until I was pregnant with my second :joy:
For my mom it took like 13 years for her milk to finally completely stop
So good luck!


Sage tea… tastes terrible but within 24 hours after a couple cups you’ll dry up quickly and painfree

My son is 18 months. I never breast fed, I drank the teas, wrapped in cabbage, I’ve been on birth control, etc. I still produce a little bit of milk :woman_shrugging:t2:

My son is 2 1/2 n I’m still leaking!!! I never nursed him either :woman_shrugging:

Ugh. I wasn’t allowed to breast feed :sob::sob: due to my heart medications, and let me tell you, my boobies wanted to feed an army! And I couldn’t do anything about it. My doctor said to just ignore it no touching, nothing. They swelled up so big, it HURT! I couldn’t pump to relieve it because then I’d just keep producing. It eventually went away, but my boobies have never been the same :joy::joy:

My son is three I stopped when he was 4 months old and still leak and have good supply

I have tried everything and I do mean everything to stop producing milk. My son is 5 1/2 and I stopped nursing him just before he turned 3 and I can’t be around a newborn baby or I leak. Some woman never stop producing it just becomes unnoticeable

You can go to the doctors and they can give you meds to dry up your milk otherwise cabbage leaves and tight bras should work

Cabbage worked for me

Cabbage leaves in your bra. Change when the feel wet. It will dry up within a day or 2

Took me over a year to dry up completely

I used a scarf 4 binding. Uncomfy but it worked after a week.

Cold and flu medicine dries up milk.

When my son was born I breastfeed him for a few weeks and it dried up on its own .

I wore a firmer bra, used cabbage leaves , an cold packs for pain, and still had to see my doctor, but I can’t remember what he gave me, that was my #6 child, fourty yrs ago good luck…GOD BLESS

Benadryl causes milk to dry up, just like it does to your nose.

Smaller bra and ice packs in the arm pits. Do not drink any alcohol.
