I have 6 months boy baby. From 1st month itself, he was having digestive problem, so doctor suggested me to stop breastfeeding for some days. This is the third time, we are facing the same issue. I think my milk is not acceptable for my baby. so I m planning to stop breastfeeding. Is there any problem on that for me/my baby? Please suggest

The longer u feed ur baby, the better it is! there is nothing called good or bad! be strong willed . it's absolutely ok to stop, but pls do check if breast feeding is the problem!

Kala here is what BabyChakra Expert Sonali Shivlani has to say.

If breast milk is not suiting the baby it could be due to an intolerance to the lactose in breast milk. Some babies do suffer from this situation and have tonne supplemented with a soy formula. As you will be stopping to breast feed you need to just take care that you don't get engorged. Express a little milk every day and slowly reduce the expressing time. This will help your body to go thru the weaning process in a natural way.
