Breastfeeding: Weaning Abruptly Is Hard


Sometimes, as much as we moms want to breastfeed our baby forever, there will come a time that we need to give up breastfeeding our baby for whatever reason we have. Weaning gradually is ideal but if in case we cannot do that, then be prepared for what will happen in the next few weeks.

My daughter was already two years old when I decided to stop breastfeeding her.  Before she reached two years old, I’ve already told her that she could only feed from me until she reaches two.  Weaning her was a little bit gradual since I started to offer my breast once a day, and that is only during night time.  At first, she cries so I instead told her that I will just carry her until she falls asleep.  I was lucky since my daughter understands easily.
