hi, my baby is 19 months old now. She is not eating anything, only takes one or two bites, after that refuses to take and start crying. She only wants breastfeed. What should I do? I asked this question many times but bt not got suitable answer that help me. I want to stop breastfeed because I am not loosing my weight. And I have also Thyroid problem. Please suggest me, how to tackle with this problem. I am very frustrated.

Answer:
ideally a baby can be breastfed as long as you can and minimum for 2 years. However if you wish to wean off, then keep the baby well fed through other milk and complementary solid feeds. Give him a filling dinner and then milk feed at sleep-time. You can also discourage the child by, using bitter edible things like neem/karela juice. It will take some before the baby is completely weaned off. Also ask any other family member/husband to put the baby to sleep. Only when you limit the intake of milk of your child(you have to be firm about it), she would start eating other solid foods for her hunger.
