Gud day wonderful doctors and mums in the house.I want to wean my baby, he's 1 yr 4months. Pls I need tips on how to go about it. Am afraid because the experience I got from my first son after weaning (14 months then) was not a pleasant one at all, I almost lost him then. Pls Is there any article I can read to guide me? Thanks
Babies who are weaned naturally usually stop breastfeeding completely sometime between 2 and 4 years of age. Planned weaning or “mother-led weaning” happens when mothers decide to start the weaning process. A “partial wean” means substituting one or more feedings with a cup or bottle and breastfeeding at other times.
Weaning is the process of stopping feeding your baby with breast milk. Ideally, the first step towards weaning your baby is introducing complementary foods alongside your breast milk around the age of six months. The weaning process continues until breast milk is completely replaced by other foods and drinks.
