Reasons to stop breastfeeding

Baby > Feeding and Care > Reasons to stop breastfeeding

There are many reasons why women stop breastfeeding. Everyone. especially new mothers lead hectic lives with a million things to think about every day especially if they have older children to take care of.

In many studies women indicated lack of supply, exhaustion, returning to work, new pregnancy, sore or infected nipples as some of their reasons for giving up breastfeeding. Everyone is different but if you feel that breastfeeding isn't working for you talk to your care giver.

There might be a simple solution to your problem. Failing that please remember that breastfeeding is a personal choice and should be something you and your baby feel comfortable with.

I wanted to stop breastfeeding when I had a breast infection 4weeks after giving birth.. but everyone told me not to.. I was in so much pain, high fever, exhausted with a baby that wanted to drink every hour.. And I was a single mom from the beginning, so on my own for everything. The doctor, midwives and nursesall told me I HAD to continue, but I just couldn`t any more.. I finaly quit (my medication for the infection cut down the whole milk production) with a lot of guilty feelings.. 5 months later (seeing how well my little boy is doing, I`ve finally made peace with it.. It`s still a taboo (where I live) to want to sto breastfeeding

Sometimes it is just too much. When I had my twins my oldest was only 2 and I found it impossible. I was exhausted and depressed so sometimes it just can`t be helped. You shouldn`t feel guilty and at the end of the day it is your decision and your child.
