My son is 1y8mo and I really wqnt to stop breastfeeding so I can take my weight loss meds.
I got prescribed sibutramine but my doc said I should stop breastfeeding to take it.


Since it's quarantine time, I can't go to the gym. So I decided to go on a 3 day fast.
Will it help to reduce milk supply?

Anyone interested?

Following this topic, my son is 1yr.2mo. at the moment but I would want to stop bfing him when he's 2 (got 10 more months)
Going to start 10-12 hours intermittent fasting strictly, though it seems to not affect my supply.
I went from 150lbs to 123lbs and I stopped losing. This was my pre pregnancy weight but I still want to get down to 110ish

My daughter is 1 as of 2 days ago and I decided to stop breastfeeding so I could take my meds as well for losing weight. I stopped during the day and am only night feeding. Once at bedtime and once in the early morning when she wakes up. So far doing that for the past 5 days and cutting my calorie intake down drastically has helped to reduce my milk supply and it hasn’t been painful at all. I wouldn’t recommend just fasting cuz it can fuck you up and make you really sick if you’re still breastfeeding but I would definitely reduce your intake at first then once you dry up do fasting. But that’s just my advice

Update:
I couldn't stop BFing, I feel sorry for him because when he's hurt or upset he just comes to feed for some comfort. Usually I try to give him something else, but the boobie always makes him better.
