Breastfeeding A Baby

How do I use cabbage leaves to stop breast milk production?

A Answers (1)

  • Wash, dry, and place the cabbage leaves in a bag in the refrigerator. A Ziploc-style bag works well. Strip the large vein in the cabbage leaf by crushing it in your hands or by using a rolling pin. Apply the cabbage leaf directly to breast. Leave on the breast until the leaf begins to wilt (20 minutes). Repeat as desired. The cabbage leaf will help decrease milk production. Note that the cabbage leaf does not need to be cold to be effective.
