Share How to do weaning

Lola Rovati @Lolarovati

The first thing is to be clear about when, a decision that you alone and your baby can make. To begin, weaning does not have to be total, maybe you can choose to do a partial weaning, that is, continue breastfeeding in the morning and at night.

The progressive substitution of breast milk for other foods is not only a question of food, but also of an emotional issue. Weaning implies the first separation of the mother and the baby. Therefore, it must be a progressive and planned but at the same time natural process so that the baby is unhandy to the breast little by little, and at the same time, so that the breast reduces the production of milk.

There is no exact time to perform weaning, that depends on each mother, their needs and circumstances.

At each age it is different: before six months is your only food, then the first foods that complement breast milk are introduced little by little.

You can start by replacing a shot, for example, that of the afternoon. When you see that you have become accustomed, replace another, for example, the mid-morning. You can also start shortening the blowjobs and supplement them with other foods or formula milk.

The first shot of the morning and the last of the night are usually the last to be replaced. The one of the night helps to relax it for the dream and the one of the morning will help you to relieve the tension of the breasts.

Ah! It is important that you go taking the milk that the baby does not drink so that it does not form a mastitis.
