I have no idea how to wean my baby from the boob.
I know it’s not mandatory to do at any specific point and time. And I know that the longer you breastfeed, the more health benefits for the baby. But I’m ready. Anna’s going to be a year on Friday. It’s time for us.
I’ve given her whole milk in a bottle twice a day for the past few days and she loves it. But she still grabs at my shirt and tries to motorboat my chest… which is my daughter’s classy way of saying “I’d still like Mama’s milk thank you very much”.
So I nurse her first thing in the morning, before bed and once in the middle of the night. And I’m not quite sure how to stop this whole process without Anna freaking out on me and without my boobs leaking all over the place.
It’s kind of like anything you try to quit, isn’t it? Do I go cold turkey? Do I just deal with Anna’s wrath? Do I start giving her milk in a bottle before bed… or could she just have water? Or nothing?
So many questions about my boobs.
I don’t know. What has your experience been? How did you wean?
Help a Mama out, yo.
