My daughter is 1 year and 2months old i want to wean her but I don’t know how to go about it, please note she does not sleep wit...
When weaning off, kindly start gradually but be firm and determined.
This is 7weeks i wean my child yet to mensurate should i be worried, if yes what measure should i take?
The return of menses after child birth varies.
No one knows exactly when it can return but know that your fertility returns soon after you stop exclusive breastfeeding meaning you may start ovulating and your period may come soon. So it's always advisable to go for family planning if you're not intending to have another baby.
Please does breast milk sours or expires when it's not expressed? When is the right time to wean a child?
NO, even if you did not breastfeed for days and the milk is still flowing, no need to throw away....BREASTMILK DO NOT SOUR...IT IS ALWAYS FRESH AT THE RIGHT TEMPERATURE
Can I stop breastfeeding my child at 1 year and 1 month?

If your child's swallowing issues start suddenly and your child is normally healthy, your child may have something stuck in the oesophagus. If your child has trouble swallowing and a fever, it may be because of an infection. Chronic swallowing problems are often caused by another health problem. Try see a doctor
My son 1year and 3 months and I want to wean him. How do I go about it cos sometimes he refuses to take the breastmilk?
You have to start withdrawing breastmilk bit by bit. 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.
I need tips on how to wean my baby, she is 1yr and 2month now, and she hardly eat
Dr. Dara Abiodun
Skip a feeding. See what happens if you offer a bottle or cup of milk instead of nursing. You can substitute pumped breast milk, formula, or whole cow's milk (if your child is at least a year old). Reducing feedings one at a time over a period of weeks gives your child time to adjust.
Please, How do I wean my 13months old?
Dr. Dara Abiodun
Start when you and your baby are emotionally ready (mother-led weaning). A good support system (dad, grandma, nanny) also helps. Try to start by Reducing the frequency and duration of breastfeeding gradually
Please note - Do not to stop breastfeeding abruptly (a gradual approach is the best)
When should I weaning my baby?
the best time to wean is either when your baby is 2years or 18months
How can I start to wean my baby ?
Good evening admin, doctors and parents in the house. Pls kindly advice me on steps to wean a baby one year and a month that refus...
First i think you should stop baby day time breast feeding and feed other foods
Feed baby very very well at night
Gradually stop sleeping with baby at night. Let him sleep with daddy or any other person at home. Keep tea or water to give baby when he wakes in the night to suck and because it's not mummy, they will collect the water. If it is mummy they will keep rejecting it and crying cus they know eventually mummy will give them breast to suck
I need tips on How to Wean my 15 months baby?
How do I wean my 15 months old baby. I need tips please
It wasn't easy at all for me. Just like my friend ones narrated her story in a forum below. I am a mother of an 18 months old baby. I weaned my daughter from the breast at 16 months old. It was very hard to do. I know you may not want to hear it but it is true. No one can tell you how to wean your baby or when, you have to listen to yourself. I hope that by sharing my experience I will have helped somewhat. I started offering my daughter solids and a sippy cup at 4 months old and she took them right away. She never took a bottle and I never pumped. I tried to wean her from the breast 4 times before I got her to completely stop breastfeeding. The first time I tried she was 7 months old and we tried formula and a bottle that was a horrible idea. The second time we tried she was 10 months old we tried to pump into a sippy cup she was fine when other people would feed her but when I tried to give her the cup she forced herself into the breastfeeding position and started screaming until I gave in. The third time we tried to wean her she was 13 months old by this time she was only nursing about 3 or 4 times a day but started to bite or pull my nipple out of her mouth too fast which hurt a lot. She spent the night by my mother's house and drank some cow's milk which she was fine. That was hard because it was cold turkey and my breasts hurt very very badly I would not recommend cold turkey to anyone. When we picked her up the first thing she wanted was to breastfeed. At this point we knew that she could be weaned she just didn't want to. So my husband suggested putting on the television to her favorite
show and sitting her on my lap with her back to my chest so she wouldn't have easy access and flavour the milk. I started by eliminating one feeding a week or so depending on how she reacted. It worked and she is happy and fine. She is not traumatized or anything. I think the other times I tried to wean her she wasn't ready and I truly wasn't ready. What it all comes down to is you have to decide if it is the right time for you and your baby to wean. And do it gradually and use the power of distraction and lots of affection. Sometimes I still miss breastfeeding my daughter but I am glad that she is weaned and we still have an incredibly strong bond. I hope my experience has helped you.
