Gradual Weaning – Helping Mothers Who Are Ready to Move On
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.
