Shorten Each Feeding Session
So how do you start the whole weaning process? What’s the best method?
There’s no “one size fits all” type method, but there are some tried and true steps you can follow to help make it easier. You can start by simply shortening each of your feeding sessions.
If you usually nurse for 20 minutes at each session, start by dropping a few minutes off each throughout the day. Keep the transition gradual over days and weeks until the feedings have almost disappeared.
