Hi everyone,

I am having a problem. My daughter just turned 12 months and now my husband wants me to stop BF . We keep fighting about this. I told him it's not as easy as just saying stop. It takes a little time for the mom and the child to wean off. ( she wont take a bottle , paci and hardly will drink milk from a sippy) . So i know the importance of her getting the nutrients that she needs. Does anyone have any tips on weaning ? Or on what I should give my child so she gets the vitamin's she needs? I heard chocolate milk?

It sounds like your husband's ready to have your breasts back to himself again, having his women back really.
I stopped breast feeding about 9 months, I wanted my body back and her teeth were getting tricky. So we're all different.
I started on good powered milk, it has everything they need in it, you don't need to add anything.
I then went on to organic milk.
All the best

my son is 11mths he will turn a year on the 28th of july. i dont breastfeed him everyday. i do it when hes crying or having a bad day. my bf hates it but it comforts my son. you shouldnt have to feel as if your being forced to stop. breastfeeding is bonding for you and your baby. when they're ready to let go you will know. but on the other hand some dont let go so slowly wheen them off

My daughter is 9 months old. Yes my husband and I would both like to have things "back to normal". I have read that if you just take the breast away from the baby they will feel rejected.I would not say to use chocolate milk at all. That will cause tooth decay. Maybe you can pump and put it in a sippy cup for a while. I don't know for sure the best answer,but I do know you should not be pressured into making a decision. This is something that you and your child share and should not be made to give it up until you are both ready!!!
