How to wean a child from the breast, kids

I breastfed my baby for up to a year. Then I showed signs of osteoporosis and the doctor strongly recommended breastfeeding.

Today I want to tell you, dear readers, about the methods that helped me to separate my little son as painlessly as possible.

I, on the advice of my mother, began to use less water. Rather, I limited myself in general in all liquids. The first time was difficult, but I was able to.
A few days later I was no longer thirsty to drink a lot of water, the body began to get used to. And I noticed that breastfeeding has become more difficult. Apparently, the milk has become thicker, the baby has become harder to get it.

Less feeding time

In order not to excommunicate my son abruptly, I began to shorten the duration of feedings. Not to say that was easy. My son didn’t want to let me go even in a dream. Had to wear it on handles, soothe, sing lullabies.

Then I decided to remove one of the feedings. Laying the baby on the night, I gave him a bottle mix. I noticed that when my baby is hungry, it is no longer so important to him where the food comes from – from the breast or from the nipple 🙂

When I decided to finally complete breastfeeding, my mother advised me to bandage my chest tightly and not to decant in any way. A friend – a children’s nurse – said not to do it in any case, so as not to harm the breasts. On her advice, I decant some milk if I felt chest pain. A week of inconvenience, and the milk was gone.

I read about products that increase lactation, and refused them. I stopped eating milk, carrots, lettuce, black currants, hazelnuts and rice.

I also tried to remove excess fluid from my body by increasing physical exertion. I began to move more, began to actively engage in sports. I even began to run in the mornings, although I didn’t run at all before pregnancy.

Through enhanced training, I not only felt that I had removed the maximum amount of fluid, but also started to lose extra kilos, and this is another plus 🙂

I was able to completely abandon breastfeeding a month after the first attempts. Moreover, I weaned the child from the breast without injuring his psyche.

And how did you excommunicate your babies? Do you think it is better to wean gradually or abruptly?
