Hello All,
My lill one is 13.5 months old. I want to stop bf him... he demands it only while sleeping that too only during night time and night sleep. From past 3 nights I have stopped giving him bm &  started with cow's milk.,but he cries nonstop. Please guide how can I stop it

hi priyanka weaning off the night feed is the most difficult and every mom goes thru this challenging phase. pls be patient and dont lose heart. pls be strong and dont give in. u will need ur husband's help or if ur mom, MIL live wth u they wud need to distract baby at night. we even got a rocking chair to help her sleep wthout bm - it worked in the day time, not night! good luck. tagging other moms Sheeba Rizvi Gayatri Rao Nisha Dayal Manveen Dua Preetjyot Kaur(mylittlemuffin) Prisha Lalwani #tagfwd

hi priyanka..... it's seems to be really difficult but u can do it... try to make ur baby sleep in a cot or slightly away from you.... make him feed nicely with milk and food before sleeping..... try to break the habit slowly... for the first few minutes when ur baby demand u can give her breast Milk later after sometime switch the bottle when he gets liltte dizzy.... all the best... try to understand the signs of your baby... talk to him... do post about the results if it's helpful for you

Hi girl... U gotta be tough now... I have stopped by during nights,  that's coz I feel too exhausted when I get up in d morning...
Plz stay strong.  He would cry for a few day or may be more than that.. They usually bf during night just for comfort.. U keep trying.. N eventually he would give in.. Ask ur husband or someone else to help u feed him

just be consistent nd never offer bm to make him quiet. you have to be strong and you can hold him and hug hm but dont offer bm or else he will know that if he cries a lot you will offer. gradually he will get used to it. it is difficult task, stay strong :-)

You can use neem oil

apply neem oil on nipples and let him taste..
then give him milk in feeder..
and tell him
Mamma dudu ganda,
bottle dudu accha....
he vl understand within a few days.. 😊
