Your Angel is All Set for Weaning

Your little one is all set for weaning off breast-feeding. Ideally, a child needs to be breastfed till 2 years, but in many cases, six months are sufficient as well. After six months, breastfeeding can be supplemented with other food sources.

Continuing after six months may lead to difficulty in weaning later, and you may need to be prepared when your little one wants to be breastfed in public. At the age of 1+, she can get all the nutritional requirements from other food sources. So this is the right time to start weaning your child.

Your Angel is All Set for Weaning

Advised procedure

Wean gradually. Reduce the number of feedings during the day and avoid comfort feeding in the night. If your child gets cranky, distract her by playing and telling stories. While you are doing this, make sure your child is full and satisfied by feeding her food that she has already developed a liking for.

Gradual weaning while you are present is less traumatic on your child and she will adapt better to her new food schedule. Do not attempt any drastic actions, like being away from your child for a week. This is not advisable for the welfare of both you and your child. Go slow, be patient, and soon your child will be happy with her new diet.
