    weaning and SAGE TEA?!?!

    hi, just went to threesixty but couldn't find any SAGE TEA there...

    does anyone know where to buy some (quite urgently)...

    if not i'm going to have to walk around with cabbage leaves on my breasts for the next few days... don't really have to resort to this...

    or anyone else have suggestions on stopping engorgement?

    sorry, i don't know about sage tea. but i just weaned my 8 month-old. i was so engorged on the third day that i decided to feed her, and that was the last feed we ever had. no more engorgement, no more milk supply.

    When I weaned I just hand expressed a little out to be comfortable whenever I was engorged. Do u think that would help!

    pm if you want dostinex?

    I just bought a box of 8 on saturday for HKD750 and have used only 3.... my breast specialist in Singapore prescribed 1/2 tablet every 12 hours for 2 days but the pharmacies here only sell in a box of 8.....

    my engorgement was still bad on the 3rd day so I had another tablet. I am now in day 4 of cold turkey and using cold gel pack....

    hi!

    i'm doing alright now, it's a bit lumpy but on line they say it's normal that way?

    maggie @ LLL mentioned that even hand expressing a few drops can help, which really relieved my stress of being bad at hand expressing.

    i've got a bit over a week of cold turkey now and doing alright. it's only sad when my son wants to nurse though but i can't let him as i have a trip at the end of the month and i don't want him to get addicted again and then have to go cold turkey again!

    yeah i think it takes time for the body to reabsorb the milk although I was told not to express, or it will stimulate the production again.....
