My LO is 11 months old now... and I BF her 2-3 times during day and at night (she still wakes up every 2-3 hours)... she is also teething and bites me occasionally... what Anurima suggested works well... when she bites... and I take her off... and then resume feeding her...

It's is suggested 6 months exclusive breast feed. N after tht u can add 1-2 feeds in a day other than breast feed. But generally 1 year n 3 months to 1 yr n 6 months is a gud time to stop bf as by tht time child's immunity is well developed.

hi Komal, i BF my daughter till she was 1. 5 and trust me i can see her immunity levels and frequency of falling ill less then the children breastfed for 3 or 6 months, and plus u need not worry about eating as anyways he will be atlease being fed by you. So continue as long as you can. And to avoid biting as Anurima suggested stern NO is helpful

Dear Komal, I agree with Anurima here. Weaning gradually will be easy for you as well as the baby. Although I would like to add that I stopped breast feeding at about 8 months itself, it got too difficult.. continue till you can :)

Hi Komal. You may continue breastfeeding and gradually wean him after he turns one. When he bites, you may remove him and say no sternly and wait for a few minutes to allow him to resume nursing. My son too did this and saying no in a loud tone did help though it took sometime. When you decide to wean, try and cut one feed in 10-15 days or so and not too fast. My son never resumed breastfeeding at 10 and half months after he had a severe ear infection. That sudden stop in nursing made my hormones go for a toss, which I am still facing (he is 15 months old now). So, weaning off breastfeeding gradually, over 3-4 months is better and will be easier for both of you. Hope this helps.
