Baby weaning: 5 steps

Baby weaning: 5 steps

To make the transition to the new power supply system smooth, you can act according to this plan:

Step 1. Reduce the number of daily breastfeeding slowly.

At least for a month. Start by saying that once a day, offer your baby a bottle of expressed milk instead of a breast. If the pussy refuses, do not insist and try again in a few hours.

If there is a lot of milk and the glands are swollen and sore, you should not use a breast pump. Squeezing will only increase milk production.

It is better to try to massage the breast, taking a warm shower, so that the milk itself slowly comes out.

Step 2. Give the bottle twice a day.

But that, if all goes well. Leave a couple of days for “fixing the result” so that the crumb, and your breasts, are accustomed to the new regime, and go on to 3 “bottle” feedings.

First of all, it is worthwhile to skip those sessions when there is little milk release (usually this happens after noon).

Step 3. Mix the new food and breast milk.

When it comes time to enter into the diet of crumbs new products, treat him with a novelty at noon, starting with 1 tsp, and offer to drink food with breast milk.

Step 4. Do not rush to console.

If the baby hurt himself and started crying, do not rush out of habit to give him a breast. It is important that he gradually wean off the “sedative”. Try to console him in other ways.

However, do not refuse him if the baby is really very bad.

Step 5. Let the baby sleep separately

Some babies refuse to fall asleep without first drinking their mother’s milk. Usually, children who are used to sleeping with their parents in the same bed do this.

Over time, the child will have to wean from evening feeding. Therefore, it is better to advance, slowly to accustom the crumbs to his own bed.

Increase the proportion of complementary foods for 7–8 days, gradually replacing the milk first with vegetable and fruit puree, then with cereals, meat and curd. Thus, by the time the child is 6–7 months old, you will have a “window” from 6 to 18 hours.

But try to keep the morning and evening breastfeeding longer – it is in the interests of the baby.

If a young mother needs to go to work before the infant is 6 months old, it is better to start preparing for weaning beforehand.

You can act on the above scheme of 5 steps, but replace the midday feeding with a mixture, because it is too early to acquaint the baby with new products.
