Helpful Tips For Weaning Your Baby
Ask For Help
Just because the mother is breastfeeding doesn’t mean the other parent doesn’t need to help with the weaning process! One of the hardest times to wean is at night. Babies and toddlers love the comfort of breastfeeding, so when they sense mom, a baby will instinctively want to nurse back to sleep.
If night weaning is important for your sanity, ask for help from your partner. They can get up to bounce the baby, walk, rock, or lay down in bed with them until they fall back to sleep. Your partner can be a valuable asset with all parts of weaning. If your toddler wants to nurse, your partner can encourage them to paint, read a book, or do something else, including feeding them their favorite foods.
