Weaning is a very controversial topic when talking about breastfeeding. Nevertheless, a lactation consultant should be the professional addressed to guarantee mothers a good experience when finishing this process. When the child is 18 months or older, it is possible to develop a plan of gradual weaning that can adjust to their routine, and please both mother and child - respecting everyone's time and rhythm. When a mother is ready to move on and wishing to re-encounter herself, if we have a baby that is ready to communicate in other ways besides the breast, it is important to develop skills and a plan of action to give breastfeeding the beautiful end it deserves.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Help mothers develop a respectful and gradual plan for weaning;

Objective 2: Help mothers with strategies to follow gradual weaning; and

Objective 3: Skills for a proper interview and defining mother objectives.
