All about Baby Weaning

Returning to work is often the moment the mother chooses to begin weaning. This is a delicate moment in the infant’s life and must be carried out as smoothly as possible.

All about Baby Weaning

Weaning The mother first replaces the least abundant feeding (often that of 17 hours) with a bottle of milk for 4 or 5 days. Then it replaces the 2nd feed of the day with a second feeding bottle, and so on in stages of 4 or 5 days which allow the child to get used to the new taste and the mother to obtain a progressive decrease of Its lactated secretion. If the mother so wishes, she may, while working, keep the feedings of morning and evening for some time longer. It is possible that the child refuses the bottle several times in succession. Do not worry: this reaction is normal. Just do it patiently every day. In some cases, the doctor prescribes drugs to reduce lactation: Parlodel, Lasilix etc.

Example of progressive weaning

Consider the case of a 3-month-old infant breastfed five times a day at fixed times: 6 h; 10 h; 14 h; 18 h; 22 h.

For 4 to 5 days

6 hours: breast
10 hours: breast
14 hours: breast
18 hours: milk bottle 1 ° age (150 or 180 g)
22 hours: breast
The next 4 or 5 days

6 hours: breast
10 hours: milk bottle 1st age
14 hours: breast
18 hours: milk bottle 1st age

6 hours: breast
10 hours: milk bottle 1st age
14 hours: milk bottle 1 ° age with introduction of vegetables
18 hours: milk bottle 1 ° age with introduction of fruit with a spoon
