A Sudden End to Breastfeeding

Very rarely a mother may find herself in a situation where she needs to stop breastfeeding straight away, for example to start treatment for a serious medical condition such as cancer, or if her baby has died. In most other situations it's possible either to end breastfeeding gradually or to continue, but with adjustments.

This information sheet will help you decide whether weaning really is necessary and if so, give you strategies for reducing your milk production comfortably and helping your child adjust to life without breastfeeding.   If you have been advised to stop breastfeeding because of a medical condition or treatment, do read our companion information sheet When a Mother is Unwell to check whether it really is necessary to wean.  

Available as a pad of 50 tear-off sheets, pack of 25 sheets, as a single sheet or within our information sheet selections (including our cost-effective sample set of ALL information sheets).
