She wakes at night also frequently for mother milk. Please help as now I want to stop breastmilk and get her used to otherpausterized amul toned milk. Mother milk has become her habit.nutrition Corner
ideally a child should be breast fed as long as you can. Minimum for 2 years. However if you want to wean her off your milk, it can be done gradually. Give other solid foods as well now (3-4 times a day). Keep giving her small frequent meals. Use bitter edible things like neem, karela juice etc to discourage her to take your milk. Introduce top feed with cup/spoon and not bottle. Start with replacing one off your feed with top feed and then gradually replace your feeds with top feeds and solids. It will take some time before she is weaned off your milk, so you need to keep patience. Hope this helps.
