Apart from its nutritional value, breastfeeding also promotes and strengthens a unique emotional bond between the mother and the baby, which is essential for a child’s mental growth. However, nursing can be challenging, more so, if you are a new mother. And it’s natural to have many questions about it.
10. Use cabbage leaves to dry up milk.
Although it is emotionally difficult, every mother has to stop nursing at some point in time. Placing a slightly crushed cabbage leaf (you can use a regular rolling pin to crush it) over your breasts will help in drying up the milk. The cabbage secretes enzymes, which aid in the process.
9. Make popsicles from your breastmilk.
Freezing pumped breastmilk into popsicles is a great way to ease teething for your little prince or princess. If your baby has started eating solid food, then you might even add fruits like banana, apple, avocado, or pear to the milk while freezing.
