Thinking about weaning?

What age should you wean? There really is no specific age for weaning.  The American Academy of Pediatrics and the World Health Organization recommend exclusive breast/chestfeeding and/or bottle-feeding with expressed human milk for the first 6 months.  They also recommend continued breast/chestfeeding alongside solids until at least 12 months of age and note that it should continue for as long as it is mutually enjoyable by both the parent and the child.  


The reasons for weaning are personal for every parent. Some common reasons are infant loss, starting solids, returning to work, switching to formula, or unresolved pain.  Sometimes weaning happens accidentally and parents weren't offered the option or support to re-lactate. 

If you’re ready to wean, I’m here to support you during the transition, whatever your reasons. Weaning doesn't have to be painful or stressful.  I help you create a clear, transitional timeline for weaning that aligns with your family's unique needs and situation.
