Diversion maneuver (weaning)

To the question when it is possible to wean a baby from the breast, there is no definite answer: each child has his own pace of development. Usually this event occurs in the period from 1 year to 3 years, although some babies refuse to breast earlier, and others later.

When the baby is 12 months old, decide how long you are going to breastfeed him. Remembering this term, it will be easier for you to bring this baby to this decision.

For a child, breast means a lot. She feeds, and comforts, and helps to fall asleep, so many children do not want to say goodbye to her.

However, if the mother is not in a hurry and listens to the baby, the longing dissipates by itself. The following rules will help speed up the process:

1) At the table, the Kid used to drink his lunch with his mother’s milk, but sooner or later this tradition will have to be abandoned. One day after the meal, try to involve a full-bodied toddler into the game, and he will quickly forget about the “dessert”. However, if for your one-year-old baby milk is still the staple food, do not rush to transfer it to “adult” food.

A sharp change of proportions simultaneously with the appearance of new products can cause indigestion and provoke allergies.

2) In a moment of sadness. If the baby has hurt himself and has begun to cry, do not rush out of habit to give him breast. Try to console him in other ways.

However, do not be stubborn if the baby is really very bad.

3) New way of life If you already know that you will soon have to wean the child away, a few weeks before this decisive moment, start once a day at the hour of feeding to go for a walk with him, and at home try to distract his attention with games. Other habits change too gradually.

If the baby used to fall asleep at your chest, stop taking it to your bed, do not hold it as you did during feeding, do not sit in the chair in which you usually had a meal.

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.

Slowly, step by step, accustom the crumb to his own bed. A night light with soft light, quiet music and your support at first will help speed up the process.

Where to begin?

With a smile, put the baby in the crib. Already in a year he will understand the phrase: “Put the head on the pillow. Mom will sing you a little song. ”

Gently, but persistently insist on her. Do not leave the crib until you are sure that the baby is fast asleep. Well, if several nights in a row, dad or grandmother will put him to bed without you.

So he would rather get used to the new ritual.
