My baby most of the times depends on mother feeding and he takes off hrs of time throughout the day for it. He avoids taking other foods,if I try to prevent feeding him he cry a lot. When I go for work on weekends he plays well with my parents.. Im not finding a way to resolve this.. Please suggest how do I stop mother feeding.

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. 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.
