Hi, my wife stopped breast feeding our daughter who is 16 months of old now. After 2 days she feels pain in her breast. Also seems like due to production of milk, it is getting harder. Is this a usual symptom? how long this continues? how to get rid of severe pain?

It is due to collection of milk let her continue to feed the baby. What waas the reason to stop? pain can be relieved by applying local heat and pressing out milk. It more useful and practical to continue feeding. At this age bay needs semi solid home foods also in addition to milk" breast milk is the best milk for baby"
