We hope that on this page “how to stop breastfeeding”, you will find all the information you will need for an easy, stress free weaning process for you and baby!
To all you new mammas out there, I would like to introduce you to a few facts before you look at the information on how to quit breastfeeding:
* First of all, you are all looking for weaning information, for different reasons, in your special circumstances I hope there are some of you who will discover that you don’t need to stop breastfeeding after all.
Breastfeeding under normal circumstances (if mom still wants to breastfeed) does not need to always end at a specific time period. Like for example: Some moms have stopped breastfeeding, when they are under the impression that they need to wean, when baby becomes a certain age or starts to teethe. This is not necessary, as baby can benefit from breastfeeding until any age, and may benefit from breastfeeding even more while teething, this is due to the fact that breast milk actually contains pain relieving substances and comfort to your baby.
You might just be having a hard time breastfeeding, and might just need some good advice and breastfeeding support.
* Please don’t feel alone, there are Moms all over, who are going through something similar to you, feel free to leave your thoughts here, to discuss and find the perfect solution and peace of mind that you need.
When you stop breastfeeding, it can be extremely emotional for you as mother as well, especially if your circumstances are forcing you into this direction.
We hope that reading this page will make the process of weaning and
ending your breastfeeding relationship, just a little bit more pleasant.
