Hi Experts, My baby is 21 months old. He is still on Breastfeed. when am at home I feed him when he demands and during night. During night he wont be getting that frequently for feed, but as I am working when ever I woke up, I feed him(so that he can sleep and I can carry my work. If he woke up he will surely ask for milk). As he is approaching 2 years, is it good to feed even if he doesn't demand during night. I want to wean him after his 2nd birthday. Please guide me.

Answer:
I hope you are doing well. While you can breastfeed your child till 2years, but you must start weaning post 6 months itself. Post 6 months, only breast milk isn't enough to meet his daily nutritional requirements. Hence, you need to start giving him semi-solids asap. You can start with formula milk now as it is a good time or even start giving him cow's milk since he would be 2years old soon :) If your child doesn't demand breastfeed then it's okay :) Make sure you give him semi-solids throughout the day and give him a good meal 2-3hours before he sleeps.
