Q:

Hi my baby is breast fed and 10 months old now. She sucks my nipple to sleep. I haven’t been able to wean her off at night . She has been comforting . M trying but she has had some allergy n infection and it’s delayed it. She hasn’t toothed yet . Do I need to be worrisome for the weaning. I really would like some tips for night weaning though. Thankyou !!

No it's fine and baby is still in the breast feeding phase. However once she is feeling better you must try and ensure that she is being put to sleep without suckling which means that someone else can take over the bed time routine.

Thankyou for the quick reply. Appreciate it .
It’s a relief to know that it’s fine . Will try. Can u please elaborate on the part “ someone else taking over the bed time routine “
Thankyou again!!

She means that apart from you let her sleep with somebody else for some days so that she doesn't remember to suckle..and will eventually wean her ff

Hmmmm ... will try that out.
