Following Your Child’s Lead
Weaning typically goes much easier when your child is ready for it. This is why many parents are starting to choose the way of baby led weaning.
It starts with a child who begins to lose interest in nursing, which can start any time after solids are started. By the time your baby is a year old, they may be more interested in solids than breastfeeding or bottles. They may prefer to drink from a cup, too.
Increased activity level in toddlers can also help spur along baby led weaning. They will want to continue playing rather than stop to eat. All of these things are signs that your baby or toddler may be ready to start the weaning process.
