My baby is 15 months old.. Now I want to stop giving him breast milk.. So how should I stop? Please suggest me.


Mahek u can breastfeed upto whatever time ur child and u r comfortable.

If you have made the decision to stop it's best to wean slowly as this will also give your body time to adapt. Else you could get engorged, heavy and even at times develop an infection. Discontinue one feed at a time. Keep the routine fixed so that the baby can also adapt. So for eg if you have decided to not give the early morning feed discontinue that for a few days before moving on to discontinuing the next feed. If the baby is fussy have someone else handle the baby. It is normal to have some fussiness but if you give in then the process becomes harder.


Try to reduce the day feed. Distract baby and keep baby full tummy. The night feed is tje toughest. Do it slowly and gently. Tell baby now milk is over :)
