I have been BF my baby till now.She is two years and 10days old.All my relatives and neighbours are telling to stop it immediately or else she will not take proper food and she become adamant.She is a fussy eater.So i wanted to wean it off slowly.Problem is I can't make her to sleep without feeding.She needs it badly.Can you guys please give some solutions for smooth transition?

hi anon the transistion needs to be gradual. first stop day feeds. then stop the nite feed. in the day time get someone else to put her to sleep. make sure she plays lots in evening and she has a good filling meal for dinner. get someone else to put her to sleep. its tough but will happen slowly. dont feel pressurised by relatives. tc

Weaning: A Tough Start And Even Tougher But Happy End!

hi dear, breastfeeding is a personal choice, continue it as long as you and baby want. make food interesting to look at and taste, with colours, textures and flavour. to stop breastfeeding, explain to your baby that she is a big girl now, she needs to give up... like asha said, get someone else to put her to sleep. do it gradually...
