They say that we learn something new every day.

They also say that we are never too old to learn.

As living proof of this, let me share with you a piece of knowledge which I acquired only today. 

Since said knowledge concerns lactation, there is a strong chance that many female readers will already know this. So let me begin by asking the gentlemen.

When a Mum wants to stop breast-feeding and move over to the bottle, what is she advised to stick in her bra? 

Perhaps post-it notes saying 'no milk today thankyou'? 

Sticky tape to seal them up? 

No, the answer is cabbage leaves straight from the fridge. It's no joke I promise you. Cold cabbage leaves in the bra help to dry up unwanted milk.

This is clearly why cabbages are called BRAssica.
