How to Wean Your Baby Off the Breast

Don’t get me wrong. I loved nursing my daughter. Nursing gave us that special one-on-one bonding time and I always looked forward to it. It became something so natural and easy for me to do. And after my son was born, I loved nursing my 2 babies. I think tandem nursing really helped my daughter adjust to having a new baby brother. It helped her feel more included. Everything was great! Until my son turned into a toddler and I had 2 toddlers wanting to always nurse at the same time. It was too much chaos for me and became more like a chore rather than something that I loved to do. That’s when I decided that it was time to wean my daughter. I mean, she was already 2 and a half year old, she had her fair share of breastfeeding and she was already eating regular food. I knew it was going to be hard since she was still nursing regularly but, one day I decided that I was just going to stop and I did. She put up a big fight in the beginning but, over time she got used to the way things were and completely forgot about it or at least didn’t make a fuss about it anymore. I was very relieved. These are some tips and suggestions I have for any mamas’ who are planning or want to wean their little ones.

My Breastfeeding Journey: Why I Didn’t Give Up

As a young mom of 2 babies that were exclusively breastfed since birth, I can say that choosing to breastfeed both of my babies was the best decision I could’ve made. I am very thankful for having the opportunity to create that special bond with both of my children. I got so comfortable that I could just pop my boob into their mouth when they woke up crying at night and then we’d both go back to sleep. It wasn’t always this blissful, intimate moment that I loved. There were nights when I was in tears because I was in so much pain from my bleeding and cracked nipples and I still had to take care of a newborn that was waking up every few hours to eat. Sometimes, I would sit there and wonder why I was putting myself through all this pain and suffering. One look at my precious daughter and I was given the answer to my question. Breastfeeding was the best thing for her and breast milk is the best for your growing baby. Also for brain function, nutrition, etc. The bonus is cost, you don’t realize the hundreds and thousands of dollars you save not having to buy baby formula.
