Hi how old is your baby ?? Has your baby completed at least one year of age ?? Doctors recommend to BF till the age of 2. don't stop feeding suddenly as this will be uncomfortable for you and also for baby. you should stop gradually and not suddenly. is there any particular reason you want to stop feeding , if not and if you can manage to continue feeds and then slowly reduce it will not cause you any pain.
