  • Weening takes discipline and time. Find one feeding of the day and supplement it with something else. The best time is breakfast or lunch. This is a time you can begin to give a cup instead and breakfast. Stop nursing at time for 1-2 weeks and until it is routine. Then begin a new nursing time to stop and supplement with something else continue with both times until it is routine for a couple weeks and move onto the next.

    Go to the library and find books on the subject. "The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding" was a good one for me.

  • well what i did was give him alot of milk before he went to sleep and when he woke up trying to eat i just turned him around and rocked him back to sleep yeah for awhile they will cry but be too tired and as for during the day i just did everything to occupie him not to think about breastfeedin it might be frustrating but it needs to be done and might get harder the longer you wait
